This hotel is in an ideal spot for those who want to go and watch cricket matches or whatever is at the arena. It is about a 5 minute walk to the arena, so you would not have to deal with parking. There is a bridge from it that goes over to the down town area that is easy to get to where most tours start or end.
I did find it odd that there were no locks for the bathroom doors in the rooms.
This place is clean and the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. They actually ordered one tour for me right there at the desk.
The food at the attached restaurant is very good, the sticky date pudding is lick the plate clean good!
There is one proviso I need to put in about this hotel. I would not recommend it for a business travel. The reason is the internet. The internet provided here is VERY slow and very expensive. Then to top things off the internet you pay for in your room cannot be transferred to the internet needed at the lobby computer, even though it is the same company. So you will need to spend an extra $5 to check into to your flight and print a boarding pass.
Unique Quality: There is an attached restaurant. A pool. A washer & dryer near the room. Looking out the window was a nice view of the city.
