I stayed for a week and couldn't fault this place. Similar price but just all-round-better than their near neighbour, the Mantra Southbank.

Bacchus restaurant in the hotel is not to be missed and their sommelier, Andrew, really knows his stuff. If...

Plenty of local restaurants in walking distance and very easy for colleagues to drive in and pick up/ drop off. Great value for money here. Also suits those who like to keep up fitness while travelling as plenty of places...

Stayed for two nights on business. The room was fab. No dust, no cracks, no stains on anything. It was sparkly clean. Bed was great. Bathroom was a bit of a squeeze but ok for one at a time. Great shower. $10 voucher if you go green and don't have the towels replaced. Facilities were good. Gym ok. Pool area...
