      Nice hotel, well located, great staff. Last time we stayed, we were on an upper floor and had great views watching the ships come into the harbour. This time we were on 1st floor, with view obscured by trees and noise from kids in the pool. Still good though.

      Parking is stupid

      Handy location. Wouldn’t stay again . Due to parking arrangements. Have to park down the street . Not covered.And they expect you to pay. If you can get undercover. They have to let you in and out of park and you have to WALK up a steep ramp out the roller door . Not good enough for a 4 star stay

      Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Location was good with lots of amenities close by. They were doing some refurb out front which I’m sure will be great once complete.
