The staff were incredible!!! My 9 yo son summed it up perfectly when the staff member ran out the back to see if they had some sleep time tea when asked - he said, 'see Mum, THAT'S why they are a 6 star hotel!' Very generous room size and a great location for our little city break. But the wonderful staff made the experience even better. Highly recommend!

Great fun hotel located in the east end of the city. Close to parklands, museum and plenty of bars and restaurants. The penthouse is a must and the two bed rooms also well laid out.
