Thank you for your feedback. Sometimes during busy periods with guests constantly coming and going there is a bit of a wait for the lifts, however we hope that you had a comfortable stay otherwise!

Our arrival via the car park and then to reception was without an issue. Then wow we were greeted with a glass of bubbly, a welcome and an up grade to an executive suite. Views to the bay, spa bath two balconies and a great feeling. Booking out was seamless and quick. Tram stop at the corner and 10 minutes to the CBD. Certainly now on our agenda for a return visit.
