Choosing an accommodation in an unfamiliar city is always chancy. We booked at the Botanic Rest and found the service a bit uneven. When I called to book my stay, someone who could not handle the booking answered the phone, and so my initial contact was a bit strange. After a couple of emails, I managed to secure a booking, but I had to request a confirmation and transport information and directions, which I never received.
Our stay was good after all. The newly remodeled room was clean and comfortable. The rooms could use additional seating--only place to sit was on the bed, and there was ample room for a chair or two. It was nice to have an electric kettle to make coffee and tea. The bathroom could use a place to set toiletries and some hooks for hanging clothing or towels up. Deconstruction on an adjacent building was going on during our stay, so it was a bit noisy with the window open, but it should be fine when the work is finished.
The breakfast was ample and could be chosen from a menu. And Tony was attentive and accommodating when overseeing the guests' breakfasts and other matters.
It was nice to be able to walk to the nearby botanical garden, which was lovely. There are a variety of different ethnic eateries locally. And transport is relatively close.
