Easy secure parking, friendly reception staff, comfy bedding and great location to Palais theatre. Only drawback is noise transfers from adjoining rooms and hall way loudly.

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary without the kids and all I was looking forward to was the spa. The plus didn’t fit the bath and mid way through the plug moved and the jet’s fired water everywhere. There was a used bandaid on the bathroom floor and the bed had a terrible sag on one side, so I had to sleep in the middle. We told the staff on checkout but honestly I don’t think they really seemed to care. We’ve stayed here a number of times now, but won’t be staying again

Dear Georgie, it is with regret to read that we were unable to provide you with a pleasurable and trouble free stay. Please accept my apology as we fell short this time. However, Duty Manager.

Great location, quiet room and comfy bed. Room size was quite small, lifts are old and slow and overall the feel is a bit drab. Limited parking options onsite. A good place to stay if you’re wanting a base to explore the area.
