The property is well located and obviously setup for business travellers. But, it is obvious the build was done on the cheap so not a great finish and don't think the walls were very thick as you can hear everything. It is quite new which is its saving grace but I don't think it will be long before it will look tired. Also, we stayed in a room facing the main road and let me just say that I was glad we had packed earplugs!

Great and convenient place to stay but needs to provide more bedding options for lighter doonas and firmer pillows. I had trouble sleeping because I was either too hot or too cold and the pillows look great but are so soft they almost suffocate you when trying to sleep. Fix these and I will be a regular customer other wise I would look for somewhere else because I need to be able to sleep well during business trips.

Really clean, perfect for our one night stay. Only a small thing, but lacked some basic items normally found in similar accomodation. I.e toiletries, bins, lack of towels
