It's a great place. Everything was perfect except wifi connection and pricy breakfast. But the location, staff and rooms it's top notch. One more thing I enjoyed was the view of tennis Courts. You can spend all day watching as a VIP.

The rooms were very spacious, but the OPEN bath is not conducive if you share a room with a colleague OR use the loo. A pull away curtain (netting) might do the trick? But all in all, a very nice experience. I've always wanted to stay there and now that I have, I would love to go back again. Breakfast is very nice with a lot to choose from. Even though it is on a busy road, you don't feel it or hear it. With direct access to the Gateway Mall, this could be my go-to-hotel. Just don't stay in the "standard rooms" - NO fridges. There could be a lot of students at the hotel, check before you go as they do get loud at night.

We had attended a 2 day conference at this hotel and the lunch buffet was poor with limited options available. There was no set meal for vegetarians, the options were the side dishes, which frankly was not up to a decent standard. Really disappointed. Please look at freshening up your menu.

No options for vegetarians ... you will be hungry. Was at hotel for training and ate undercooked roast veg with rice for two days in a row. Even after complaining on the first day, options for vegetarians were the same on the second day. Rather look for another hotel.

Clients must have the option to change meals. Irons and extra blankets must be kept in rooms. The aircon must be adjustable to at least above room temperature. I had a little child so he might have gotten sick.

I was surprised in a very good way. The room was clean. It provided the comfort I needed as I was tired from a very long travel. Checking in was easy, staff was friendly, it is a lovely place to stay.
