Loved the view of the Cathedral. This hotel needs some renovations, ie carpeting is worn, bathroom wear and tear. Overall good experience. Breakfast is full boat so you won’t go hungry. Room was clean and had additional amenities like coffee, refrigerator and hair dryer.

The staff were excellent in every regard. The property is clean, modern and good value in a great CBD location. I really have nothing negative to say about this hotel.When (if) the cathederal is repaired the view will be amazing.

Yes parking is an added fee, though they usually put a bottle of water in your car which is a nice touch.
