The "Manor" is located in a great area within walking distance to food, shopping and city center. Our room was elegant with efficient use of space. We had rented a car and were happy parking was next door for our convenience and luggage.

Hi there! The only parking I saw was along the street. We used cabs. The walk to Sky Tower was about 1 mile. It was quite lovely walking through the neighborhoods!
