    Comfortable for one night.

    We stayed overnight at the Ovolo Laneways as we were going to the theatre and thought we’d spend the night in town. The hotel is close to several theatres and good restaurants. We had a standard room which was fine for one night. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. The mini bar had a couple of complementary drinks and there were some complementary snacks also which was a nice touch. The bedroom was large enough but the bathroom was tiny. The shower itself was fine and a comfortable size but the sink was ridiculously small. It would have been nice to have a small comfortable couch under the window rather than just having the bed to sit on. Overall it was comfortable for one night when you are not spending much time in the room.
