Great location with onsite self parking which I found easy and plenty of space. The one thing I find hard to accept is NO BREAKFAST Available! Why?? Even if it was room service ‘Only’. Sending people across the busy main road to have Breakfast…. Not Wise!

The room was a good size, staff were friendly. Wotif refers to the hotel as 'city sands' but all the signage is for 'The 19th' which is quite confusing. Linens etc were good, but the hallways etc were pretty tired - patchy carpet etc.
