Stayed for 2 night during the holidays. Very close to attractions and a short drive from major shopping centres. The room was clean and nice with a newly renovated bathroom. The staff at Breakfast were great and service was excellent however the night time meal was piss poor. Dirty tables poor service and missed orders. The was clearly no management...

First impression - arched glass way filthy and plastic plants as far as the eye can see. I think the three trees in the area near the dining room were real but everywhere else dreadful plastic. AND I mean everywhere. Ick. Not a big hotel which I like and special requests met. Room quite small with nowhere to sit other...

Overall the experience was good. Very quick check in (Priority Guest Rewards Member). Received free wi-fi, free basement parking and two water bottles. I think I was supposed to have received two per day, but only received them on the first. Facilities were good. Used the pool and spa on one of the days. Only bought a coffee at the...

Good Clean Hotel, walking distance from Parliament House and tourist bus. Room had 2 queen beds and walk in shower. Hotel restaurant was good for simple food, car parking not overpriced. I would stay here again.

Can't adjust air conditioning temperature- is on or off. Dirty spoons in room coffee cups. Safe too high for me to...

A long wait to check in at about 6.00pm in the afternoon we arrived. Only one person on check in, should have been more at that time of the day. Room was comfortable and beds were good. Our door code refused to work twice during the stay when we came back to the room. Had to leave my wife in...

Great place for a business trip, nice large comfortable rooms with good wifi, good restaurants (I especially liked the breakfast) and a convenient location. The staff were invariably courteous and helpful. I stayed for business, but good for a touristic stay as well.

The hotel is in a central location and better value than a number of others. It is undergoing much needed renovations. Rooms large, staff friendly and work hard particularly at breakfast if a rush is on. Insufficient staff if a bus group hit the eatery at once. Covered parking at $12 per night is a bit much as you can...

We stayed here to visit the hot air balloon festival. Unfortunately on the Sat night the noise from 2 weddings within the hotel was exceptionally loud. We couldn't watch tv, read a book, or sleep. We complained to no avail. Staff responded with the most ridiculous statements such as noise like this is normal in hotels across the country, it's...
