The room was in desperate need of a makeover. It was very rum down and shabby looking. The sign say that the spa bath was out of order looked to have been there for a long while. The room was also very noisy and i could hear traffic and other guests I did not use the spa, restaurant or pool...

Arriving in a hotel after a 36 hour journey would test the patience of any traveller. Arriving here was a pleasure. First impressions last! And were then repeated ad nauseum for the week I was there. The number one priority, for me, in a hotel, is staff attitude and this hotel personnel had positivity in abundance. It is friendly, professional...

Once the preferred place to stay in town the rooms are dated and poorly thought out; especially the motel. However, most disappointing aspect is the service. Did not feel welcomed and any enquiry seemed as a bother to the reception team.

I agree with some of the other reviews that mention the rooms starting to date a little, especially the bathroom, but we all had a very comfortable night's sleep, the water pressure in the shower was fantastic, the hotel is close to eateries and shopping, the reception staff were very helpful, it was quiet, the room was very spacious, so...

I was placed in the adjoining units (11) which resembles a motel. The room was large and enough space, desk, space for bag. Bed was ok, only me using it. Bathroom looked newish and met my needs. Although intially concerned over possible noise this was unfoundered as generally ok. Restaurant has two types of meal rates, corporate and General. Good...

The staff were amazing. Super accommodating - checkout was at 10am Sunday but my bus didn't leave until 9:35pm. Not only held my stuff but also, later, took in my shopping I'd done that day (lots - easy walk to the mall and shops) and even charged my phone for me! Restaurant was about the normal price for a nice...
