Great location
Great location for sightseeing and shopping. All tours pick up from here. Efficient, friendly and extremely helpful staff. An extra mention to Rachael in reception for going above and beyond to help me sort problems with airport taxis both ways after my flight changed times by 5 hrs. She stayed over an hour after her shift finished to help us. Great breakfast and very clean. We had a windowless room and it was extremely comfortable and quiet despite being near the lifts. Would definitely stay here again.
