Well located and clean with great service. I watched this hotel being built in 1987/88 when it was the Pavillion and it is still modern.

Well located. A few things wrong with our room. Staff corrected them all for us. Some rooms need a bit of updating but we were still happy. Breakfast was great. Restaurant meal was very good also.

Very confortable beds. In a great location for our purposes. The restaurant service was very, very slow. Once the food arrived it was good.

Easy book in and departure - friendly staff - quiet location not far from Parliament House - good restaurant - plentiful and varied breakfast although staff are a bit slow to open additional restaurant space to accommodate the demand for seating - room was comfortable, clean and serviced daily - pool, spa, gym and sauna were well maintained - secure parking (for a small fee) is available in the basement
