Save your first impressions for what's inside....when we arrived I was concerned we had made a mistake. The outside looked unloved, the elevator needed a lot of TLC and then the restaurant had a 'closed for renovation' sign. However, when I got to reception I found a very bright and happy woman who processed a fuss free check-in, apologised for the restaurant being closed for a couple of weeks and off we went to our room. This is where we left our 'unloved' impressions in the elevator. Clearly this place has had some work done. Our room was lovely with plenty of space and comfortable beds. The bathroom was spacious with a full size bath that my wife enjoyed and a good shower. The wi-fi has recently been updated and worked perfectly for us, fast and easy to connect to and use. The room and bathroom were spotless which is easily the most important thing for me. The criticisms I have are probably not fair, but I will make them...the TV was a bit small for the room size, there were three of us in the room but only cups and supplies for two, and there was a tear in the curtain. So, not a big deal at all. This doesn't claim to be a 5 star hotel and is only a fraction of the price. Close by is the Knox Club, the huge Knox shopping centre including cinemas and on Sunday morning were the markets just up the road. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
