I spent 8 nights in this hotel while attending a conference at the nearby conference centre in August 2015. The one bedroom apartment was terrific with lots of space, washing and drying facilities, a full kitchen, large living area, desk and table and four chairs. It was light and airy and very comfortable. The small lobby means that staff notice...

Our room was huge, with cooking and clothes washing facilities as well as the usual amenities, and it had a very large living area too - more like a small suit really.

Great hotel, we had a 2 bedroom apartment which was great. The staff were very helpful. Food was lovely ( only slight criticism would be quite a lengthy wait for all food) and very locally situated. Recommend this hotel ,x

I've stayed here a few times. It is spectacularly good for business travelers. Depending on which side of the hotel your room is on, and the floor, views are quite good. Rooms are huge!! More of an apartment than anything else. Breakfast is buffet and quite reasonable. There are a few restaurants close by for dinner options. Staff are awesome!
