    Location is good. Property is fine overall.

    The restaurant has all the two-seat tables in one block away from the windows, which are exclusively for larger groups. While the view is of the car park, some flexibility in the seating layout would be good.

    The room was huge and comfortable. Television could have been larger for the size of the room. Parking was near the room. Aircon was a necessary bonus in the summer heat. The evening meal in the restaurant was excellent as was the buffet breakfast.

    We arrived early and were told to come back at 2pm. Fair enough. We came back at 2:40 and the rooms still weren't ready! went away again for another hour and when we returned rooms still not ready! I complained as the check in time was 2pm. ASked and got free breakfast for us both!

    We had a meal at the Restaurant which was first class. My husband had a Scotch Fillet which was cooked to perfection and myself Lamb Rack which was absolutely delightful. The veges, the presentation and the protein were just superb...well done to the Chef on the night of 16 Feb. Great position, so close the City, plenty of parking close to rooms.

    Property is very tired and in need of a major revamp. Beds, linen and furnishings in the same category. I don’t think these comments will be a surprise to management.
