          When we were there the whole place looked like it had begun an update. New decking around the pool was an improvement from the old bits that were still there. ALL the staff were excellent and that always makes a stay!

          Stayed overnight, room was large, comfortable bed, bathroom was a little dated however signs in the Lobby did say that upgrade/refurbishment work was being carried out on some floors. Staff were helpful, on check in and check out.

          Dear Guest, Thank you for your question. We provide complimentary car parking here at the hotel. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
          Hi, we are thinking of booking at your hotel from Oct 3-6 but arrive at 530am. Do you have any way for us to check in that early? We are travelling with a 2 year old so it would be very hard to wait in the lobby after a red-eye....thanks!
