              • Reasonably handy to central city, within easy walking distance of everything and the hotel is well sited for access to the ferry terminals and the Maritime Museum. The staff are very friendly, helpful and attentive, good in room facilities and even a dishwasher.

                Not a great place and not worth your money. Expensive carparking considering you canpark on the street for free 8am and unreliable in the lobby. The bed was very little.

                Our room overlooked a building construction and from floor 3 this was very noisy, bed was hard. The sauna was really dark and scary, the sofa was old and sagging.

              • Location was good, for a short stay this hotel was adequate and the staff were great and I will be recommending the Grand Chancellor to as many people as we can. The room was nice.

                The bathroom was getting a little tired.

              • The location was very convenient and dinner at the hotel restaurant was excellent and very reasonably priced. The staff were helpful, the room was very well equipped and great kitchen in case you felt like cooking. My hubby used the gym and was good.

                Reception dirty, really small tv and tiny towels. Breakfast is poor value/.

              • Great staff and location, fully furnished apartment walking distance to everything. Very good value for money and fine for the price. Reception were very helpful and the room was excellent. The bed was comfortable and the kitchenette was clean, spa facilities and found the sauna to be wonderful.

                The hotel was a little shabby and bathroom was a bit dated and the height of the bath/.
