    Brilliant location and very helpful staff! Luckily had a room away from the bars but only because I had to wait for nearly 2 hours to check in due to my original room not being cleaned on time.

    Charged for three days when we had already paid for two via wotif. Probably a fault with Wotif. We have credit card details for this. Rip Off!
