Excellent location. Able to walk to shops and cafes. Overnight parking was $6 but we were able to leave the car all day too. Room was tidy and clean. Very efficient and friendly staff. Could use addition sockets by beds. Would stay again.

To begin with, the hotel upgraded our room. It was such a lovely gesture, as it was my partners birthday. The Room service good was also amazing! The staff were so understanding when my partner accidently fell asleep in the shower (over the drain) and flooded the carpet. We were both very embarrassed, but they handled the situation perfectly. The gentleman who helped us during the night was fantastic. Thank you for being so understanding! I highly recommend this hotel, not because of the amazing food or accomodation, but based on the professionalism of the staff alone.
