We chose this hotel for it's proximity to the city centre. The service was excellent with very friendly and helpful staff. The unit was a great size and although an older hotel had been refurbished nicely. Although there were plenty of pillows, they were all hard, a few softer ones would have been nice. With a microwave, electric frypan and...

Don't mess with a taxi or a shuttle if you don't have to). Laundry...

We'd a spacious room but it was a little dark. We had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable. The lady on reception was very helpful also! There was noise from the room upstairs though via light floorboards but it wasn't disruptive.

This room was quite large with a separate bedroom. There was a full kitchenette with refrigerator and microwave. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a large TV in the sitting room and another in the bedroom. You are within walking distance of downtown and many restaurants.
