I liked how it was close to Hamilton centre and how easy it was to get back to the hotel. Room wasn’t as big as I thought it was going to be. Didn’t like the fact that to park the car in the hotel car park it was an extra cost of $20.

Front of house staff could have been a bit more friendly, and overnight car park fee was a bit steep. But then again, for $89 per night it’s kind of expected.

Great big rooms. Great big comfy bed. Perfect for a city overnighter. Great price Centrally located. Parking out back- a little poky to get in and out of but off the street and monitored. If you like dead silence - you're out of luck! It is the city and you should be out enjoying the night! Great hot shower and bath!
