Second time staying here. Check in was easy and fast, room was good as well. Found onsite parking a little difficult as parks were small and tight but overall happy with stay and would rebook.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The hotel is well located. It was easy to walk to the CBD and with good access to mayor streets to get to other places by car. The staff was friendly and willing to help. The parking area on site is very limited, small and tight, so it is difficult to manoeuvre but it is better than having to leave the car somewhere else. The elevator was missing several buttons. The room was a bit run-down. It has 2 very small bedrooms with big beds that were ok. I think the lay out is ok. We had a late after hours check in and the room we were given had a strong smell to fish. we had to purchase air freshener and live the window open for the night as we could for another room. There were a couple of cleaness issues that were sorted out by the friendly staff. The worst thing is that we discovered a small cocroach in the room in our last day but then we brought a big one home in our food bag!! There are permanent residents in the building and one of them is very rude if you happen to see him.

The room was clean, but there were some big issues with it. The bed was too big for the room that you couldn't close the doors. On the first night I used the shower and the shower head fell off. I could screw it back on, but it faced the wall and I couldn't move it. It also wouldn't stay screwed in so I had to hold it while I showered. Unfortunately I was in a conference the next day and the reception desk wasn't open yet for me to report it. If they can fix those issues then the room is fine.

Ok accommodation for what we needed, we didn't spend much time there. The drainage in the bathroom sink was really bad, we couldn't use it. The overall condition of the hotel is ok, but it didn't feel especially clean. There was definitely hair in the shower.
