Fri night stay and last minute booking

Good location, friendly staffs, nice size room, and overall I would stay here again for the value.The rate is great for Friday night at a late booking. I looked at the swimming pool but it does not look inviting for a good swim. LOL. We encountered huge problem to park our car. Street parking is limited to one to 2 hour parking and sparse. Parking will be our deciding factor in future where we stay.

Great Location

Hotel is in a fantastic location however that is the only thing the hotel has going for it. Pictures provided were deceiving. The hotel is very outdated. The car park was average. Rubbish and old furnishing dumped in the car park made a very average first impression. The Courtyard Garden had ladders dumped in the gardens. The room itself was well cleaned. Renovation works to next room were getting undertaken whilst we were trying to have an afternoon nap at about 230pm. The response from the staff was it will be finished by 4pm. It would have been appreciated to receive notice that this was going to occur rather than listening to drilling and hammering for 2 hours. For a three night stay we paid approximately 150 per night. We believe this is over priced due to ill comfort.

Average to ordinary

Location was good, but I could hear my neighbors very clearly on both sides, could have been embarrassing...I only really needed a place to sleep as I was in town to work so it was fine but I wouldn't stay there for leisure...

Nice place close to the City

Stayed for 8 days. Place was quiet given its location so had a great night sleep. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Staff was excellent and very friendly. Didn't have breakfast there so can't comment. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Overall good place to stay of you are looking for something reasonable close to the city.
