One patron noted, "The location is fantastic, in walking distance to a lot of attractions and public transport on your door step. Taxis can be found outside the Hotel all day and night".

Many lodgers enjoyed the free breakfast, describing it as plentiful and fresh, with a good selection of hot and cold items. One guest remarked, "Instead of having week old muffins and dry cereal as is typical for a lot of hotel continental buffets, there was everything from biscuits and gravy to fresh cinnamon rolls and fresh fruit, eggs, turkey sausage and pancakes. It was a pleasant surprise!". A few guests did complain the breakfast was very busy on certain mornings, however.

Several travellers were pleased with the hotel's accommodations. They described their lodgings as clean, modern and spacious, with comfortable beds.
