Nice accomodation not too far from the city, and very clean.

I chose the hotel mainly because it was available (attending a trade show during a Parliamentary sitting - not a wise idea!). However it turned out to be surprisingly easy to get to and from the city centre, and easy to get to from out of town (and to escape the city from at the end). Overall a quite convenient location near major roads.
Check-in was easy with very friendly staff available. The efficient friendly staff in the restaurant later help make it a very pleasant stay.
The room was described as the "best in the house". Okay, it was probably really a two-room apartment, but the lounge room was bizarrely bare, with only a TV on the wall, a three seater couch opposite it, and a very small table with two chairs in a corner. You could have played cricket in the rest of that room! It's a wasted opportunity to do something nice with the room.
There is a counter with the usual fridge under and room for kettle etc on top; tea and coffee making facilities only, but quite tidy.
The bedroom is very nice and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom looked fairly recently renovated and in top condition. It was probably the cleanest bathroom and general room I've seen in a hotel in a long long time!
Only complaint was the utter lack of available power points. The only one int he lounge was by the kettle, so couldn't charge & use the phone while sitting comfortably. And the only one in the bedroom I could find was by the door, opposite the bed. I was staying unexpectedly so didn't have my CPAP, but if I had I'd have been annoyed as I couldn't have plugged it in. Was this hotel pre-electricity??
The in-house restaurant does a nice dinner menu and breakfast is usual mid-range hotel fare. My curry dinner was very nice, and the morning croissants were real croissants, not supermarket bun-equivalents.
Overall a very good hotel, well priced and situated, and I'll stay there next time I'm in town. less
