It’s not a problem for Lorraine for you to check in late, quite handy if your plane is late at night, close to the airport, botanic garden and city. It’s really quiet. The first breakfast is complimentary which makes it a nice touch. The place has everything you need even some…

Awesome space in a quiet neighborhood of Edge Hill. Most recommended with a car since it’s a 10 min drive to both Esplanade and airport. Lorraine is super responsive and helpful and the place is self sufficient. Couldn’t ask for more!
