Had no idea this hotel was here. It is in a great location, quite central to most things. The hotel was very clean and tidy. The traffic proved a bit noisy at night but overall it was a great stay and great value for money.

Liked that we were able to have pets there, but I recognise I misread when booking. That not all rooms are dog friendly. So had to change rooms upon arrival. But was pleased that staff were able to accomodate my mistake.

I liked the on site barista coffee in the lobby. I thought the WiFi was very average and not very customer friendly to use. The room was very clean and tidy and was good to have aircon. The noise from the outside got a bit annoying at night. The bathrooms needed more storage such as shelving as I ended up using a stool from the room as a makeshift shelf.
