What a very good place. We were attending a concert (Doobie Brothers) at the Civic Theatre and this was almost the closest accommodation - only a ten minte downhill walk.
Its a very clean place and with a generous variety of amenities including a kitchenette, mini bar, super pressure in the shower, TV with Sky Sports and a comfy king size bed. It also had a combination washing machine/clothes drier in a cupboard. We didn't need the a/c but I tried it out and it is very noisy.
We were able to check in at noon despite being told it was normally 2pm. We used the place primarily as a base from which to visit and shop. Parking costs $20 per night and their basement is tight. If you've got a large 4x4 then look to park somewhere else. We went out for dinner so can't comment on the meals other than breakfast. It was ok with a good variety of cereals, hot drinks and other things for the Contential. I was surprised that the cooked portion was made to order rather than a line up of options. Given the size of the restuarant and not too many in for bearkfast I guess it makes sense. There were three of us in our group for breaky and we all came away feeling ready to take on the day.
All in all we had a good experince here. All of the the staff we interacted with were helpful and curtiest.
The cost to stay was ok, not cheap but for what was on offer the price was about right. I'd certainly stay here again.
