The property is very well appointed and close to most attractions by bike. Check in and check out went smoothly apart from the arrival parking.

Because we booked with wotif we were made to pay for the car parking. Probably just a way for the hotel to claw back some money from wotif. So book direct and it's free.

Great hotel, couldn’t fault it and we will be back. Spacious room was like a small apartment with separate bedroom and bathroom, kitchen and lounge. Parking on site, restaurant, cafe & bar in hotel. Fantastic location close to shopping, loads of restaurants, easy walk to lake.
