I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. It is in a quiet suburban setting and a few minutes drive to the city centre. Staff are friendly and helpful, rooms spacious. It has the feel of an overgrown motel rather than a typical hotel. Overall the building design has not dated well and some of the maintenance has slipped. In my room the aircon and the extractor fan in the bathroom were not working and the fridge seal poor, meaning it was noisy and leaking. On the plus side there is plenty of free parking and the breakfast has a wide selection.
