Beautiful hotel, in a excellent location. As you walk out the door you walk straight into the city centre. Many tourists spots within walking distance. Staff were amazing and friendly, nothing was too much effort for them. They were full of ideas of places to see and places to eat all within walking distance. The apartment we stayed in was... More

We were looking for a centrally located hotel to access a range of visitor attractions. There was a nice lounge/eating area which we didn't use much but our queen studio was just what we were looking for. We didn't spend much time in the room but there was a small seating area where we could unwind between outings, a small... More

The location is great, as are the staff. While the rooms are a little tired this is made up by the face that the beds are very comfortable with a really good choice of pillows and really good linen. I was travelling with grandchildren and it was great to stay somewhere with a proper kitchen and laundry.

We stayed for 2 nights and were upgraded. The room was huge! All the comforts of home. The only detractor was 1. The bed was quite soft, this is personal preference but i have a hard mattress at home so it was the opposite to what i am used to 2. A couple of bits of furniture have little nicks... More

We were delighted to have the option of an upgrade and were well looked after when we advised it was a special occasion. We were even presented with a box of chocolates. Nothing was too much trouble, awesome staff. Room was clean, tidy and comfortable.

The Apartment was absolutely beautiful, I cant speak highly enough about it. Would love to come back. The location wasnt as easy to find as I had hoped but the walk was worth it. We went for a walk in the evening as its location was so close to everything. Totally Recommend

I will definitely be staying at this hotel again. A wonderful weekend away with friends in a 2 bedroom suite which was spacious, very clean and had a fully equipped kitchen which is great when you have a family to feed.

The Executive Single room was spacious and well appointed, also quiet. Service was helpful and efficient. But as noted by another reviewer, for the price paid, the breakfast is very disappointing. Surprisingly little attention paid to basic requirements.
