John, nz1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
We stayed two nights . The pros... easy access to the town centre. Service was really good. Air conditioner was not working and they changed the room. Food was really good as was the selection. The cons prices are a bit steep.. No hotel car parking available, need extra charges to park.
