We would probably stay here again because of the location re: nearness to transport Sound of trains didn't cause us sleep loss But the rooms and bathroom are small and lack character Also wouldn't eat at the restaurant again: the coffee was stewed and undrinkable unless desperate - obviously dripolater poured into a coffee pot Wine prices were exorbitant and...

Worst stay in my traveling life at this hotel. Rooms are small, hotel is expensive for what we get but the most terrible event is really the noise. The hotel is located on top of the rail tracks and we can ear the trains all night long. When ask at the reception, the only solution they offer is ear plugs....... More

This is an adequate hotel. The hotel is in a nice location, the hotel itself is tired and and in average condition. There was not very much noise from the railway line that the hotel is literally on top of. The staff were not particularly helpful and the parking charges were unclear.

Good size room, great view, trains, buses, taxis on doorstep and nice downhill walk to the ferry. Stay here every year for rugby - eases pain of losing to the All Blacks. Nice shopping center across the road with good coffee shops.
