We booked this Hotel as a last minute decision to stay in the city so we got a good deal, and it had onsite parking. The free City Tram leaves from right outside the Hotel and then after that, not much else great to say about it. The room size is OK, the bathroom is on the small size but the shower was good and hot. We booked a "Grandview" room which is a little more expensive than the "non-grandview" rooms, so I was a little disappointed to find that the window is sssooo small, about 1.5 metres by 1.5 metres, such a pokey hole for a "Grandview", and then factor in the point that since their website photos were taken 2 large buildings have gone up on the waterfront so they block the view of the waterfront! There is still a pretty decent view, but the window was dirty and quite frankly I felt a little claustrophobic.
The ironing board was shonky, the iron had burnt something on the hot plate, the hair dryer wouldn't stay open and kept shutting on my head and we couldn't find a station on the TV that was watchable, none of them had a clear signal, add to that the wonderful view we had into the Remand centre with its guard tower that overlooks the prisoner's exercise yard and we just had to laugh.....
I also noticed the tiled wall behind the reception desk was dirty, yuk! There is also a major construction site right opposite the Hotel and they started work at 7am but the noise was minimal, however, whatever they are building has just started and they will be working there for some time, if it's a multi-story building then the "Grandviews" just got even less of a grandview. haha!
Look, having said all that we really just needed a bed for the night so none of that really mattered, and it was priced ok for us. Other people seem to have had a good stay but we would not return.
