The rooms were very spacious, clean and with all ammenities for our short stay. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was adequate for our needs. Hotel is only a 5 minute walk to the town centre.

Pleasant Stay
We enjoyed our time here and the breakfast was superb. It was clean and tidy with ample free parking, fast internet and our room was comfortable. Some guests choose to travel with their pets and this was unusual for us Aussies.

Great place for a good sleep
Great hotel good price. Only suggestion for the hotel is that they should warn guests that the adjoining building is used for fire practice. When we got up three mornings in a row there was a large firefighter presence. They aren't disruptive, just a little startling LoL

We had a good night's stay at Embassy Inn. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, the location was very close to the famous legislative building, and walking distance to the marina, pubs, and restaurants.

We took our dogs with on this travel. Surprisingly, the pet fees were almost the same as one room rate for the weekend. No extras were given to the pets. We brought our own beds and bowls.
