        • Older travelers

          We really liked the location. We had come to visit a relative in the Heart Institute which was within easy walking distance.

          We were not impressed with the cafe.

          The fridge in the cabinet. I got injured while opening the fridge. Probably it should be outside the cabinet or safety measures should be implemented.

          We liked the location and the price.

          Our room rate included a continental breakfast which was fine. The fact that we were charged for the cream cheese for our bagels seemed a little on the cheap side to us.Just a little thing that we noticed along with there should have been more wait staff on duty in the cafe on a holiday weekend.

          Not much

          The hotel, despite what the description said - was not central. It took us 30 min just to get downtown. Our air conditioner barely worked, the elevator slow, and no breakfast. The term they use "delux" dont kid yourself!

        • Older travelers

          Good size room and excelent pool - good access to mall accross Road - free internet was a nice touch

          It was a bit far out from the City Centre - certainly not within walking distance and there was poor bus service - You need to have a car to stay here to transport you into town

        • Group of friends

          The staff were very friendly and the room was very clean.

          Although the staff in the restaurant were very friendly and did their best, breakfast was not a good experience. We waited 10 minutes to be seated, 30 minutes for our orange juice and other drinks and up to 40 minutes for food. The food was good when it arrived but the wait time was unacceptable, especially for the drinks. I had to ask three times for a glass of water. I believe this problem arose due to understaffing. As I say, the two members of staff were very good but should have had more help.

          The room was nice, bed was comfortable, great value for the cost. The parking was free - great advantage when you have visitors come to your room. It was nice to have the arm chairs and table in the room as well. Nice big flat screen tv a surprising bonus.

          There was construction going on in front of the hotel - which we didn't know about. Made it a bit difficult to get into the hotel. Didn't interfere with our stay - no noise problem or anything.

          I like how convinient the location was, and the relaxed feeling. We were made to feel welcome, and had a comfortable stay. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Good value.

          There was road work going outside the hotel, but nothing that disrupted our stay.

          Hotel rooms were clean.

          Very basic. Pool not available to kids. Had to ask twice to have cab sent for trip to airport. Restaurant very limited.

          The shower experience is awesome

          The hotel charged $17 extra on my card compared to the amount on my invoice without any notice or explanation.
