Great location. Staff exceeded expectations . We had fantastic view from our room. Taxis always waiting, so no waiting. Would stay there again. Very kid friendly . The tv in reception had the cricket playing which was a real win for my partner.

The hotel was run down but the staff were great. The night manager was amazing, he delivered toast and sprite in the middle of the night. Plus organised a last check out, I wasn't able to stay another night because the hotel was booked out....More
