Stayed for 2 nights at Distinction. Rooms were tidy, clean and most of all - comfortable. Easy to find and central. Within walking distance to many eateries - both takeaway and sit down restaurants which was perfect for us as we had both of our children with us. Also a short 10min walk to PaknSave. Also, the breakfast buffet was delicious..such a broad selection of food..was definitely the perfect way to end our stay. Will definitely stay again in future.

Don't judge a book by it's cover. Pretty ordinary looking from the outside but very nice once inside. Checking in and out was a breeze; quick, efficient and courteous. Rooms were the same as most hotels/motels. Would happily recommend.
