    The best thing about this hotel is the location - that's it. It's a stone's throw from Central Station from where you can get to anywhere. There are other hotels which are near the station, of course but the Great Southern is at the intersection...More

    We did stay here for New Year, so prices were greatly inflated anyway, but I still think the price was horrendous for what we got. We chose this hotel for the location - about a 30 to 40 minute walk away from the New Year...More
