Very good 8.0
Late finish - Early start
I had a late meeting and an early start and the hotel was in a central location, very clean and restaurant opened early. Really only slept and had breakfast but everything was good and very clean.

Getting a bit dated but excellent service!
This is a nice quality hotel a bit of a walk from the main CBD area (about 25mins), the rooms are nice, getting a bit dated but the staff and service is excellent. We stayed here for the weekend and on the first night we had a curry dinner at the place just a 3min walk away which was superb and authentic.

Overnight Accommodation
It was,great to be able to drive into entrance and walk in and sort out booking and then park in car park. Ordered food and it was fantastic. Not happy with putting a hold of $50 on my credit card when they had already been paid in full. That is rubbish
Sandra, nz1 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Terrible place!
Got put into a two single bed room when I booked a queen. Got moved but then had no hot water for the whole duration. Made multiple attempts to ask for this to be fixed but no one bothered. Terrible place would never stay here again. Avoid it like a plague!
