      Was enjoyable however, we were charged for our breakfast when it was included, had to draw it to Reception’s attention , then had to wait 2 days for it to be reimbursed.

      It was awesome!

      Great stay for a couple of nights with husband and toddler. Clean, comfortable and enjoyed the stay. Highly recommend to anyone looking to still enjoy a city break during these times!

      There was no atmosphere. Lovely area to sit and have a drink with a piano but no music or atmosphere so not inviting.

      Rooms are dated & small. Renovations going on during the day. Location good. We were excited about our stay but overall it was nothing special.

    • 10,0.Exceptional

      Excellent stay overall. The view was spectacular and the amenities were great!! Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negative was that we were instructed to check- in at 3:00pm and we arrived at the hotel at 5:00pm to find our room still being cleaned and finalised. Given that we were only staying for one evening and our dinner reservation was at 6:00pm, this was not acceptable.

      Other members of my family arrived to the room before I did. As soon as I opened the door the smell of Cigarette hit me. One of the other family members indicated that he said the exact same thing on arrival and was starting to get a headache. So it was not just me who could smell it. The hotel reservations staff were fantastic about it and didn't even question me when I advised them of the smell. I was expecting someone to go back to the room with me and confirm the smell but not once was my integrity questioned. The staff were more than happy to move us to a new room and they were incredibly apologetic. I would have been happy with any room whether it be lower, same or higher floor (I just couldn't stay in the smell) but we ended up in a higher level room with the most amazing views. I have never in my life questioned/complained about a hotel room and was so worried in doing so but all the staff at the were fabulous and I will not hesitate to return to the hotel for another celebration.
