Conveniently located. Comfortable and clean. Rooms are a bit chilly with no heating systems. Heaters can be requested. Breakfast selection was small but the staff were very willing to accommodate any requests. Hairdresser located right across the street as well as access to shops at The Square. Staff very friendly and willing to assist with all requests. A pleasant stay...

Staff - friendly and very helpful. The food and drink were of excellent quality and reasonably priced. We viewed the rooftop facilities - the pool, sauna, steam room and spa - fantastic though not many sunbeds. The bedroom was excellent with air-con and all the trappings of a good 4-star hotel.

The room is nice with modern finish for business. Not a hotel for vacation as its stuck in between office parks. Certainly a place to go alone to do business but not to have a romantic time. Pool area is also nice with a gym, steam room and sauna

We booked last minute and our experience at the hotel on arrival was warm and wonderful. Our room was small-ish but functional and met our needs. The breakfast was absolutely fabulous, and the assistant manager Brian was absolutely stellar. If you are looking for a hotel which offers great location, friendly staff, "can do" attitude, you will enjoy this property....
