Car parking options for Hotel Guests

The Western Hotel does not offer car park spaces; however, there is a small underground car park that can be used for the duration of the check-in.

We advise all guests to arrive to our car park first for check in, use the lift to bring luggage straight to your room and then re-park your car to one of the car parks in the city.

Guests checking into CityPoint Apartments are also asked to arrive for their check -in to The Western Hotel. They will be given further instructions at reception.
