The thing I liked most about my time at this property was that no request was too much trouble.

Solo female. Feel I was given a sub standard room because I booked well in advance before Easter and it was cheaper. No views, no menus in room, aircon not working properly, no one answering room service phone, tv not working properly so I couldn’t watch a movie, generally poor attitude from front desk staff.

I had higher expectations for a Hilton hotel. Bathroom was tiny - really tiny. Im only 60kg and 5”5’ and struggled in there. My 6 foot husband was another story :( Very noisy room - you could hear everysingle person who walked past (even their shoe noise travelled into the room. Taps turning on in the next room sounded like it came from our room. No parking around the full block of the hotel. To have to pay for parking was a bit rude. I cant remember the last time a Hotel charged for parking. Beautiful venue. Staff very helpful.

Close to city centre, friendly staff , the warm cookies were great. Very over priced, rooms very ordinary, not much has changed since it was the holiday inn stay in cheaper places that were much more modern.
