I stayed at this hotel on business. I am fairly picky about hotels and did not arrive in a good mood as my boss had suggested this hotel - hence I had no say in it :-( On arrival when walking to the reception we walked past several rooms where the 'view' was of the lift area or darker areas of the walkways. I was not keen at all on having a room situated like this as I like to be able to see out into natural light.
At reception I mentioned that I was not keen on a room near the lift or near the busy/dark parts of the walkways. I was given room 303 on the top floor and I was very pleased. This room looked out of the sliding door onto natural light. My colleague had a room I think was 208 and it was just as nice.
The room itself was very nicely decorated and the beds and linen were very comfortable. There was a little kitchenette and I managed to buy some food to cook myself for breakfast and dinner. The breakfast was nice (only had one day) but I did think if you were a couple staying here that $26 each or $52 per couple would definately be too much.
The room was cleaned very well each day. TV had many channels.
Pub next door was great to meet colleagues in and have some dinner. There is secure parking available for no charge.
Others have said about the door being a sliding door which I didn't have any problems with as my room has a patio bolt on it for extra security. Curtains are 'block out' so no problems with privacy.
When I left I did notice that the bottom floor where reception is has like cobbled floor which made it very noisy when wheeling my bag along (sorry if I woke anyone!!). If staying here again I would just make sure I had a room away from the lift on the second or third floor.
