Clean, spacious, very comfortable room, close to the CBD though the hill to the shops can be difficult for the infirm and elderly. Lovely views, plenty of parking.

The property is well maintained with friendly staff. The rooms were clean and the view from the balcony fabulous. The dinning room had only just reopened so we did not eat there. Well worth the price.
