Lovely stay at this hotel. Staff are lovely. Room was clean and well presented. At first we were given the wrong room but staff quickly changed. Bathroom is outdated and very small. Buffet breakfast was well presented and yummy.

Convenient to the light rail, unique hotel interior with the gardens, and would be great if there's an upgrade to the furnishing for in-room microwaves
