“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Beautiful grounds, fountains and plants everywhere, lovely! The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location was great, you can walk anywhere pretty much. It's even walking distance from the pacific coach station for the bus that comes from Vancouver. Rate was reasonable but we did book through Hotwire. Room was amazing, big suite with a kitchen. Balcony, I think two fireplaces and separate bedroom with French doors. Pool and hot tub nice and clean.

This hotel is for long stay, not for business. Many took their families. So, you will find some kids at the pool, but it must be fun in some extent. As for location, I cannot say close to city center, but walking distance, definitely.

Excellent hotel with warm and friendly welcome. The value for money is great as the room and furniture etc. are of the top quality.

Choice in restaurant could improve a bit and there should be normal tea (not just herbal teas) and some milk in the room.

The pros: great location, excellent pool, good gym, nice rooms with modern styling

The cons: really is too hot. It is about 10 degrees hotter in the rooms than outside. This is because the hotel has an environmental cooling system which is great but does not extend to the rooms. Currently it is 74 degrees outside but 88 degrees in the room. They do bring fans if you ask.
