    Great location, easy access to trams, running track across the road. Staff very friendly, rooms clean and bed very comfortable. Breakfast and dinner were both great experiences, good choices and great service in the dinning area.

    Was very nice. Dissapointing that the restaurant and bar were closed on Friday and Saturday nights!! On the website it said free parking but once we got there we were charged $10 per night for parking!

    Hi, I arrived at hotel around 10am and I could have had a room on the ground floor but I declined as I was out all day and only wanted to drop my bag off. I would say no harm in asking.
