    The bed was very comfortable and fantastic water pressure in the shower... But thats about all I was impressed with. The hotel appeared to be in the process of renovating which is fine but I was still charged the full price. From my window I could see the hotel pool was drained and dug up around it. The air-conditioner was set to heating and there was no way to change it because its centrally controlled and the room was extremely stuffy and warm despite a fan being brought to the room. Won't be staying here again.

    Not enough parking and holes in the walls in the room

    The hotel is under renovations, which we were not told. Was not worth $237 per night. Furniture very out dated and the stucco roof was unsightly in the rooms. Will not recommend this to anyone. 2 stars not 4

    Property is in good position to access inner city, nearby restaurants, hotels, cafes, shopping etc. The timely upgrading and refurbishment taking place was a surprise and perhaps worthwhile letting guests know about before booking and arrival. However courteousness and helpfulness of staff was a real positive in making this stay a reasonably comfortable one.
