The staff at the hotel attract numerous positive comments, with many guests choosing to focus on their friendly and helpful nature. A warm welcome is offered, along with information about the hotel's facilities and the local area. The concierge is able to offer excellent recommendations.

Negative Reviews

Little storage or hanging space

Several guests comment that there was little storage or hanging space available in the rooms. One guest described the closet as the size of a locker. This presented a problem for those guests who didn't exactly travel light. You may end up feeling like you're living out of your suitcase.

Occasional frustrations at breakfast

Although the quality of food provided on the free breakfast buffet is of a good standard, guests report occasional frustrations. Items sometimes run out early and are not always replaced. Some reviews also suggest there are long queues to endure, especially on Sunday mornings.

Cost of parking

Perhaps unsurprisingly, a number of guests were disappointed by the extra charge levied for parking. It's not unusual to be charged for parking in a downtown hotel, but the fee does seem fairly high at this particular property.
