I love the older style beautiful building I was very impressed with staff, allowing us an earlier admission as we’d flown in mid morning & needed to leave our bags.. The area around is ‘the rocks’ & perfect for walking down to Harbourside to view the ‘vivid’ light show.. very happy.. thanks Mercantile& Expedia..
