The Parliament Hotel is situated in the city centre and very convenient for most things, we were in town for a convention at City Hall which was only a 2 block walk away.
We arrived and the very first impression, which is always the most important was that of being welcomed back as an old friend. And this was our first visit!
The reception manager was so friendly, helpful and smiling. We were shown to our room and everything pointed out.
Decor crisp and clean, no fussy bits. The king size bed comfortable and the linen clean and fresh.
This is a no frills hotel so we were not expecting any but the fitments that are there such as the safe, flat screen TV, air conditioning and tea making equipment all worked as they should do.
The room itself was slightly small but what do you expect from a city centre hotel?
The bathroom with wash basin and shower/bath slightly dated and tired but functional.
As per previous reviews the only poor thing that jumped out at you was the lift, it is noisy and the doors shut and open with an almighty "Bang"! It does not fill you with confidence. Something to look at.
We were on the 7th floor which was very handy as the exit door led straight from there to the dedicated parking bays in the adjoining multi story car park.
We had a very peaceful and comfortable sleep and breakfast the next morning was hearty, filling and very good.
Check out simple and swift and we left with the Manager imploring us to return in the future, and guess what? We will!
