Rooms are rather old but you get what you pay for. A really good 3 star hotel with food basic amenities. We got free juice boxes in the morning which was awesome and their lifts are cool. Good view of sky tower and slept with no problems. Only negative is double/queen/king beds are all 2 beds joined together.

We arrived just after midnight on the 31st August, 2013.
The young man at reception, such a happy chap made to feel welcome and whole check in smooth.
We asked about what time breakfast was started, it was going to be about half hour after our departure. Said he would leave message and would be able to do a juice, cereal toast etc.
what a surprise when the chef offered to do a hot breakfast of eggs and bacon.
I was hungry and ventured down the road after check in, not sure about the area.
Room was great, we had two interconnecting. Size spacious, nicely decorated.
Would stay again.
Very near the sky tower.

Room Tip: My room mates thought front room was a bit noisy. I slept well.

We stayed at this hotel because it was convenient to the Civic Theater. It was clean and handy to the Queen Street shops, and the Elliot Stables eateries. Check in took a while, but the room was exactly what we'd ordered. Breakfast was available, and there was a Countdown grocery shop right next door.

I can really recommend this hotel for a city trip. It is not luxurious but very good located and the room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable which is very important. I really appreciated the washing machine where we could wash some of our clothes. For breakfast we had to pay extra but it was the best breakfast I had during my entire vacation. Complimentary wifi for 1 hr a day was great.

Tip: go to Lord Nelson's Pub right next door. I had the best lamb rack ever!

Just off Queen St and walking distance to restaurants, Viaduct Basin, Countdown supermarket next door. Room basic but comfortable King size bed, kitchen clean with microwave, and staff friendly. Was warned about street noise and bungy on Victoria St so asked for and got a quiet room on floor 14. Need to reserve parking and not panic when the only place to park for checkin is on the bus stop outside! Easy to get to from airport and by car.
