Excellent customer service from reception staff. Unfortunately my room could not be cleaned daily due to the hotel being busy over the Easter break. I like my beds to be made and toilet cleaned each day but the hotel were not able to. Having paid $300 per night I expected this service. Disappointed guests have to pay $20 parking per day when it’s not even a secured parking area. House keeping very nice and have extra towels.

Our room was smelly, it seemed clean but stunk like someone had been smoking in there. It felt very outdated and overpriced for what it was. It was noisy, we heard every door open and slam from out in the hallway. The lift was loud. People talking and coughing in the hallway. Our TV didn’t work. Parking was overpriced - especially as one of the boomgates was non existent, so it wasn’t even secure.
