My husband and I stayed here for a 3 day business trip. From the moment we arrived at this little gem to when we left, we received exceptional service. Prior to our arrival the GM, Jan, and staff responded promptly to queries. The pre-arrival experience was just as wonderful & personalised as the actual arrival & stay - Jan's welcome, readiness of friendly staff to help with requests etc. Room was lovely and though it faced the road, we were never disturbed by noise. The hotel is still doing some renovations but these were not intrusive with the staff on hand to guide in a seamless manner. Good breakfast selection and lunch in the picturesque garden was excellent. It is also located close to a mall with a top jazz club and a train station. I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be given a special 5 star experience while on business or pleasure- top marks for quality, a fast internet for work, efficient response to business and personal requirements. We hope to return soon.
