This is a nice hotel in the Scenic chain. The foyer is nice but often full of tour groups milling about. Reception and concierge staff were friendly and helpful. Car parking is not free but only $12.50 per day and this included valet parking. Wifi was only free for 30 minutes. Location was OK, fairly near the centre. View from room was poor but we were only there 2 nights.
The room was large and the bed very comfortable. There was a solid luggage rack, drawers, table and chairs, fridge, kettle etc. The bathroom had a bath with shower over it and was efficient. Towels were adequate. Toiletries were lovely but not replaced on the second day (unlike another Scenic hotel we stayed in) which was disappointing. The toilet was difficult to flush then became impossible then would not stop at all. Someone came to look at it in the night and we then had to use one in an empty room. The next day we had to remind the staff to get it looked at but when it was done it was OK but not brilliant.
We did not have breakfast there but had one evening meal there. The food was fine but there was not a lot of atmosphere. A lot of tour groups go here.
