    Rather new and well equipped

    Unprecise address information (no house number), Navi leads you to another nearby BW hotel along same road but on the other side of highway intersection.

    Helpful staff

    I could not access the foyer at 6am. The security door would not accept the room key. I had to leave via the side door and left my room key outside the front door.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful, especially Michael at the cafe bar in restaurant. There was also notably no traffic noise.

    Possibly a warning about taking the keycard entry token to shopping malls - and the possibility of the shops infra-ray devices voiding it would be the only aspect I could think of.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    The rate is cheap including full breakfast. The room is clean and comfortable.

    No views from room. Not much facilities. A bit far away from the city centre.

  • Family with children

    Nice place, easy to find, good food (room service).

    happy as visiting family so a nice room for a getaway

    We had a very lovely young lady that worked in the restaraunt that couldn't do enough for us. She was rostered on both mornings we had breakfast and also one evening we dined. The decor of the rooms was lovely and kept very clean.

    We chose the Hotel because of the price only. The location is too far off the city centre if you don't have your own car. It was clean and they have a nice open air pool if the weather is good.

    Don't go for the cooked breakfast, just take the continental one. Omlets or scrambled eggs are not good and not worth the top-up.

  • Older travelers

    Reception staff were excellent. Helpfull with local reasturants, getting about town and a complimentry coffee to top it off!! Thank you. Our room was well appointed, clean and five stars. We will be staying there again on our next visit.

    Good size rooms and no noise!

    Cups were dirty. Afer travelling 9 hours and looking forward to a cup of tea, then having to follow up clean cup. Although responce was immediate

    service excellent, room size is good. quiet environment.

    a little bit expensive

    The locality. It was reasonably close to everything that we wanted to visit and if not close easy access along main roads.

    The first room we were shown designated as "executive double" was too small for our use over three days, maybe an overnight stay would be fine but no room to spread out and live comfortably for the time we were planning to stay. Staff/Manager immediately acted on our complaint and we were upgraded to a two room suite in no time at all.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    The shampoos and toiletries were very nice. The restaurant was excellent. Room service was very gourmet.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Room was spacious and clean

    The towels are like small postage stamps not really suitable for larger people. Also quite stiff not very fluffy. Was surprised at the large difference of room pricing from weekend to weekday. Would have thought as staying more than one night but less than 4 the price of the room would be consistent each day of the stay.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The staff were friendly and very professional and the food was excellent. In particular one member of staff, Sarah, not only operated the bar all night on her own, but also took all the food orders, looked after all the diners and served food to a fairly busy restaurant area. Good on her!

    If Sarah hadn't been as friendly and professional as she was, the hotel might have struggled to serve all those customers with just one member of staff in attendance. She did the work of at least 3 people.
