Loved our stay at the Watson. Such a convenient location. All the staff we encountered were lovely. So handy having a Woolworths just a short walk away and the local grind next to the lobby. Would definitely stay again!

Liked almost everything except the inadequacy of car parking facility and the complete absence of room service ( no cleaning was done during our 2nights stay and there was only one packet of English breakfast tea with expired milk were supplied ).
