Positives: we booked a corner room for 5 nights. The room itself was large and spacious for all 4 of us (children aged 9 & 12 on double sofa bed). Room is spotless, comfortable & all you could ask for. Hotel is in a good location; 5 minutes walk to the tram routes/manjor attractions. Staff all friendly and helpful.
Negatives: our room smelled of smoke when we arrived. The hotel would have moved us had another family room been available. The smell dissapeared after a few days of leaving the windows open. Breakfast very average. Good range of cheeses + cold meats + figs etc. Bread rolls. Bread for toast. 3 cereals. Boiled eggs. Chips/fries made an appearance on our last morning! 2 types of juice - not fresh. Unfortunately the buffet was not well replenished when things ran out. And mugs and glasses weren't always available. In the room, you only get a free bottle of water for the first night and have to pay thereafter.
I would rate this hotel as excellent based on the room and the location, but just gave it average due the the poor breakfast. Overall, I didn't feel it provided value for money based on the room rates we were paying over new year.
