    Beds very uncomfortable and hard. Bathrooms need upgrading. Food at restaurant was okay, panacotta though requires less gelatin. Lifts were being upgraded which was a pain having to wait. Earthquake shook the building.

    I was here overnight and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was great and the process of staying stress free. Signing out was efficient and quick and the location was really handy. Thanks

    Loved staying at the James Cook on a recent family weekend escape. Excellent location and loved how you can access the hotel from both The Terrace and Lampton Quay. Generous sized rooms and nice and quiet. Would highly recommend.

    Went to stay on business. Only one functioning lift and no stair access to many floors. Waits of up to 20 minutes. Room was nice but would've taken more modest accommodation with better access. Restaurant was average and buffet was extremely expensive.
