A brilliant room with lots of quirky features, we also struck lucky and got a corner room which had a wonderfully large balcony. Clean, comfortable, good size room, helpful staff and not too far out of town.

We had a deluxe studio twin, with two queen size beds in separate areas. Very spacious, with sweeping views and a balcony, on 17 th floor. Very clean, very comfortable, with great beds. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and would stay again.

This hotel always delivers. I stayed here one night for work, I wish it was longer. The staff are always friendly and welcoming. I received a free room upgrade too.The rooms are great and beautifully decorated. The beds are very comfortable, there is a kitchenette if you want to self cater. The French bakery downstairs does a brilliant breakfast. There is some noise from e main road as I stayed here during the week but it is not too bad.

Stayed for 2 nights at Art Series The Blackman in a Deluxe Studio Suite and the experience could not be faulted. Everything was perfect from the early check-in, the wonderful staff at the front desk who are very friendly, very chatty and very awesome, the room was amazing!!! Clean, quiet, huge tv, beautiful artworks throughout, excellent bathroom facilities and amazing amenities. The cleaning staff are lovely and very cool. Parking was $25 and worth it as it is underground and safe for my motorcycle. My partner was particularly impressed with vitamins and a well stocked full size mini bar !!! The only thing stopping me from nicking the bed was the fact i ride a motorbike! Myself and my partner will be back again in 5 weeks!
The cafe/resturant downstairs is AMAZING and please do try the giant crouton with poached eggs and hollandaise sauce! Cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: Get the Deluxe Studio for a King Size bed you will just go to heaven in!!

Staying right now for the night before my wedding and The staff here at The Blackman have been amazing. From my initial phone call and all the little things I asked for, to the free bottle of sparkling to celebrate my wedding!
The rooms themselves are stunning, clean and have super comfy beds. Room service was quick!
