About 15-20 min from downtown. Nice location. Lots of shopping and eating place around. Breakfast is pretty basic. If you want veg sausages it takes ages. Away from hectic downtown so nice and quiet. Can make breakfast more exciting. Friendly staff.

Dear anshuvilla9, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am pleased to hear that you appreciated our quiet and convenient location and all of the amenities in the area. We have vegetarian sausages available on request but as we have to cook them in the oven, rather than under a grill, it takes around 30 minutes. We recommend that you let us know the night before when you will be down for breakfast and we can arrange to have the sausages ready and waiting for you. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon. Best Regards, Fiona S. General Manager
