Driving to The Concierge is a little disconcerting because the area seems a tad seedy and rundown. They have good security, however, and you park in their courtyard. The room was great. I took an outside king room with shower only, and verandah, which is lovely. The decor is modern, the shower great (rain style set into the ceiling). I'd read previous reviews which said the courtyard could get noisy and disturb if you stay in the inner rooms. In fact friends had no problems and, if anything, mine was the noisier room with people coming and going in the street late at night.
The hotel is not at all traditional; from the daschunds to the reception behind the Freedom cafe counter and dog references throughout in the rooms. The bed was very comfortable, good linen and towels. I had a problem with power - no lights, plugs, or TV, but it was rectified quickly - a fault at the box. One small issue which I'd also read in a previous review was the intermittent running of the extraction fan in the bathroom area. As it's all one room, with just a curtain divider, it was loud and intrusive at night. My solution was to turn off my power altogether during the night (taking the key card out of the box).
Staff were professional and courteous. Freedom Cafe breakfast OK, laid back and nice space to sit.
