Very central clean accommodation
Hotel in a fantastic position. Just two minutes walk to the tram which goes direct to the airport in 40 minutes. 5-10 minutes walk to the main thoroughfare for shopping. The 11 bus stops outside to take you to Ocean Terminal where you can visit the Britannia. The hotel is small but has everything you need for a short stay. The rooms are modern and the bedding and towels (which are large) are renewed regularly. Breakfast is buffet and you only have to ask if you require something not on show e.g. porridge.

Great city but won't book a room here again.
Hotel was really good but room was poor. Shower was grubby and mouldy, cleaner didn't clean the room properly and couldn't open a window and there fan or air con.

Fine for short stay
Common areas are lovely but rooms are not very clean. Location superb, particularly if you plan to use the tram.

The hotel is clean but as I’m pregnant I would’ve like to have a room in the first floor rather than the last one but overall I recommend
