Extremely impressed with the king suite, room 115. Very large, dedicated work & lounge areas, two large televisions and a big comfy bed. All fittings were great quality, and the room itself was immaculately clean. Large and deep bathtub, great water pressure in the shower. The couch in the living area was comfortable. Would certainly stay again.

We love this hotel as it is close to Qpac. Stayed in a suite which was lovely. There was a mixup with a minibar charge we did not use but a simple phone call sorted it quick smart. Great staff great facilities. Pool bar was excellent as was the range of beers on tap. Will be back!
