The hotel was a little far off from the city -- we had to take a 20 minute public bus ride as recommended by the receptionist. There was nonetheless an array of restaurants just across the road. Staff were friendly and helpful. Beds were considerably soft and comfortable (one of my favs). I saw alot of effort in being eco-friendly... More

We found this hotel on booking.com as one of the most affordble around the area. Service is good, the hotel room is clean! Centralise area, quite near to the mall and other amenities! Overall worth for the price.

The hotel is situated well out of the city over 45 minutes walk away, it has very little nearby apart from an Indian or Chinese and a couple of takeaways around the corner. Hotel restaurant was nice with a small selection of meals but very expensive for the small sized portions and wine was very expensive as well. Room 320... More

I stay at the Elms every week. I love the welcome I get when I arrive, in winter my room is heated before I check in, and the rooms are extremely comfortable. Business travellers usually get located on the 4th floor which is very quiet even when the hotel is full.

Room was clean and comfortable which was the positive. However customer service very haphazard with members of our tour not receiving their luggage until 10pm after our arrival at 7pm.

Hotel is close to the Victoria Street Clock Tower. There are a few restaurants and fast food chain within 3-4km. We always ask for quiet rooms when travelling so we can have good rests and be well prepared for the road the following day. We had a room facing the side street, which I believe normally quiet. However, this hotel... More
