We stayed here for a 1 night stopover to break the journey from Sydney to San Francisco. It met our needs perfectly, We pre booked a shuttle from and to the airport which worked well.

Our daughter just had a baby and we planned to stay with her and did for a while. We needed a break and this hotel was perfect! The staff were very helpful and the room was clean.

It's no longer a secret: that the success of this hotel is in the consistency of service delivery - from the front desk to housekeeping - which ensures repeat guests like ourselves.
