Thank you Kris for taking the time to complete a review of your stay with us! We really appreciate it. We care about creating for our guests an environment that we would be happy to stay in.

Spent one night here on way back to Australia, was great place, very close to shops. Situated on very busy road but did not hear any noise at all. Very comfy beds, great shower and heater in bathroom which we needed. Would recommend for sure

Nice comfortable clean unit. Very good value for money. On main road but quite sound proof. Very good location just across road from Westfield Mall. Lots of places to eat within walking distance, would stay there again.

"Spa rooms are not huge but bathroom is a decent size even with the spa. Ground floor rooms good for mobility."
"Keep your inventory up to date."
"All rooms facing busy road."
"Ask about room size before you book if you have large suitcases. We had the upstairs one (I think it was No 27) which was spacious."
