    Good facilities. Bed comfortable and clean. Good staff. Only if you change the old windows to double glass will decrease the noise of people in the bar outside. Great stay I'll recommend to my friends.

    There's a NCP carpark pretty much right outside on Nelson Street and if you go to the NCP website you can pre book your parking space and get it cheaper!
