I go to this mall when I have to, the entrance and exit takes a while and parking is difficult to find. This is an upmarket mall and has destination stores so you have to go here when you have to.

The mall is spacious, with a variety of shops and restaurants. There’s something for everyone. Lovely outside shopping area as well. Its undergoing a revamp so can’t wait to see it then.

Good range of stores without to much of the same. Fairly well sized, so you don't feel like you need to power walk to get around. Very nicely maintained and clean which really adds to the experience.
