I stayed a few months ago, it was good then and its even better now. This time I stayed in a loft room, a split level room with the very comfy bed on the mezzanine floor and the bathroom and lounge down stairs. Plenty of space to spread out.
Had breakfast and evening drinks, both were busier than when I last stayed. not surprising since its great quality and good prices.
Used the gym and pool at Ian Thorpe Centre (guests have a free pass) which was wonderful, much better than the typical hotel gym.
Location remains perfect as does with renovation and fit out of the this historic wool store.
But shining brighter than ever are the staff. Impossible to single out and one in particular but saw the Manager caring bags and helping at breakfast. Its great to see the same welcoming faces Jess x2 and Cailine. Its like coming home!
