My first time staying here. It's been a great experience as the staff are so friendly and helpful. I like the whole art theme while the room and bathroom were spacious and above all comfortable and stylish - ideal for relaxing. I will be back, that is for sure.

Stayed in an apartment on fourth floor. Exceptionally well appointed and laid out space. Kitchen area, sitting area, bathroom and bedroom. All kitchen facilities provided. Very good lighting. Bed comfortable. Only stayed one night but it was just ideal. Buffet breakfast included. Typical buffet breakfast of high quality. However, the offering of English Breakfast tea was simply appalling! It was... More

Good size, comfortable room on 6th floor with all amenities including kitchenette with dishwasher. Decor was dark, not our taste but suited the Art Deco setting of the hotel. Having requested a view would have preferred it if they had suggested an upgrade to harbourside as view from back of hotel wasn't good overlooking street. Great position for visiting the... More

Stayed in the Parkin Suite on the fourth floor, balcony overlooked the bay, the national art museum and the park and marina were all part of the view. Great place to have a glass of wine and relax while enjoying the city sights.

Very comfortable stay. Large bathroom with bath and a small shower. We didn't use the restaurant. Very convenient for the museum also close to Courtney Place, convenient for restaurants and cafes. We were in the apartment section of the hotel.

Just fabulous! The location of this place is as good as it gets in Wellies! So much to do within walking distance! The service is always great, the rooms are lovely, the pool is great and the spa is a perfect end to a busy day of eating, drinking and sightseeing. Highly recommend this place!

A good, but not great, hotel in a fun neighborhood. We were able to walk most places from our waterfront location. The area is filled with good, if often scruffy, restaurants of all kinds. The hotel is moderately upscale with both standard hotel rooms and larger apartment units.
