Firstly, I'll list the good things,
Right on the waterfront the hotel is ideally located for most of pr rupert. Close to shops, restaurants and parks for the kids.
On road parking outside is plentiful and we had no problems there finding a space, day or night.
Wifi was excellent, this may sound trivial but I have two teens and with four of us using Internet at some times it coped well- trust me this is rare!
Bathrooms were clean and spacious, lights bright and towels clean and fluffy.
Now the bad stuff!
In 30 degree weather the broken thermostat in our room and our room adjoining did not help (fix it guy very quick and happy to help out fixing it!)
Radiator is older style pipe and metal fin, the cover fell off regularly and this posed a serious hazard for our toddler. Should have covers repaired.
The curtains didn't close, they had clearly broken off the tabs at that end of the track and the sun streamed in every morning, not ideal! Easy fix, not sure why not done!
Beds were standard hotel issue, but every one of the four bed spreads had either a substantial rip or burn in it, if they are old and tatty, get new or get rid!
Overall, the place may well have been a "plaza" in it's day but now it's not really that grand. It was good value for money and I would stay there with my family again, BUT don't go expecting state of the art.
Oh and finally my personal hate of all hates, the stupid barely-there trash bags in the bins, either use a bag, or don't! But if you must, then put it IN the bin, not draped across the top so that putting anything near the bin will cause it to tear! Thankyouverymuch!
