I was totally unpleased on the first night, there was no LCD TV in my room, the bath tub and toilet were pretty old...

The hotel is old but everything is up to date. Location is "in the middle of nowhere". You will need a taxi to go anywhere. Hotel has "transportation desk", but the price is 50 to 100 % more than regular taxi. Service is good and fair. Service people try to be polite, but when ever you have a question or...

I was part of Nurturing Growth's 3-day Personal Development Seminar. Sunnyside Park Hotel is an excellent venue for business professional workshops. The rooms are spacious and the food is excellent. I can recommend this venue and would love to visit the Sunnyside Park Hotel again.

A great venue for a conference. There are rooms available for small and large groups, with excellent facilities and staff assistance. There is a lounge with a fireplace and a cosy pub in the hotel for informal meetings. The restaurant buffet food was good, but could have more local offerings. The prices of rooms, food and drinks are a bit...
