Really convenient being right in the heart of the CBD. Easy access and close accessibility to all shops, train station and various eateries near the waterfront. Breakfast buffet was excellent with a gorgeous view of the harbour!

Rooms are a bit dated, but clean. Parking is chargeable at $30 per day. Cafe at hotel is reasonably priced for breakfast combos. Good location for walking to food and attractions nearby. You pay for location rather than a new hotel room.
