I arrived on my own with injured knee, limping badly, in pain at check in. I asked for a ice pack, no problem but know one on the front desk offered to help me with my luggage, I struggled with it. Silly me I should have asked for the obvious! I required a little more than a warm friendly welcome.
Bloody Marys restaurant, we arrived early in the evening and could be seated anywhere, but the waitress forgot to offer us menus and we (3) had to go fetch our drinks menu. Meals selected from the medium price range selection was bland, over priced and over pitched!!
Bloody Marys breakfast was delightful, large selection on offer and fresh, fabulous food and friendly FOH staff.
Housekeeping, some minor things that were not removed from room or replaced but minor. Friendly staff.
Over all I would come again, I will be more speak up when needing help but should I have, really?? Room was spacious clean and comfortable. Good location in general for walking inner city.
