Sorry, I don't know as I used public transport and taxis also. I would contact reception and ask them, they are very helpful. Sorry I couldn't be of more help to you.

The closest station to EQ2 is Haymarket, but Waverley is 26 minutes' walk away or bus 1 or 34 will take you there in 15 minutes. A taxi will take approximately 13 minutes.
