I stayed here a couple weeks ago while on business and I had a really great experience. The location is in the CBD and is in walking distance to many restaurants and shops.

Had a brilliant stay! The hotel was clean, room was comfortable and most important to me the staff was helpful and the management looked after us so well. The location is perfect and walking distance or cheap Uber from all the things I needed to do in CT central.

The best thing about this place is the location – just a 2-minute walk to the CTICC – very handy if you are in town for a conference. Also, about a 1 minute walk to the nearby Virgin Active gym if you feel the need for a workout (there are no exercise facilities at the hotel). It is a fairly...
