Centre of town for a decent price. Clean and tidy. The bed was good. I had fun with the TV remote working out what buttons actually did what but that's no big deal.

Great central property good value for price. Parking entrance being around the corner was tricky to negotiate with reception also requiring exit to the street and finding it two doors down. Lifts heavily used with a small wait required each time with separate lift to lower parking.

The location is excellent. Close to Botanical Gardens and the bike paths. I didn't like that our room stank when we arrived. I think it is the smell coming from the drainage. The hallway outside had an overwhelming odour to it as well. The pool and the sauna was also closed when we stayed which wasn't made clear to me when I booked.
