Just what was needed. Check in was smooth and easy, the room was clean, quiet and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful.

An excellent weekend or longer stay. My wife and I have stayed at this hotel many times. The situation is perfect for travelling north or 10 minutes south to the city center. There are plenty of local buses travelling in both directions just outside the hotel. There is currently an upgrade in progress. This however does not affect the warm... More

Fantastic place to stay if going to AECC. Parking was easy - a short walk and you are at the AECC! Room was modern and clean and staff friendly. Bonus was that breakfast was freshly cooked with lots of choice. Will stay again when visiting AECC.
