4 night stay
It was lovely to have the space of an apartment. We got a quiet apartment at the back of the building. The only issue was looking at a huge retaining wall and the lack of light meant we needed to have the light on all the time. But the bonus was the quiet so we soon got used to the lack of light and view. The hotel is really convenient being close to the shops, and the bus stop was right outside the door. It was a short walk to the cable car. It felt really safe because you needed a key card to enter the building.

Great stay
We booked the family room which was great. Would have been excellent if there were 2 showers. Everything else was really good. Location was the best.

In need of an update...
Perfectly fine for what we needed but rooms are in need of an update. We found rubbish and old lollies under furniture so it looked like a proper clean was no complete prior. For the price we paid, would expect a little better. Great location - nice and central. Cant fault front desk as they were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in studio room type nice and clean and safe environment, I'm glad there was dryer and washing with the laundry soap was a bonus 😉 since we travel with kids. Staff are very accommodating, we are happy they got own parking. 👍👍 very accessible within city and nearby areas. Definitely we'll stay here next time.
