            Great staff and nice hotel. Excellent location. I was very happy with my choice and would stay there again.

            the location was excellent at a very fair price....desk staff helpful and knowledgable...guest lounge and locker and kitchen facilities great

            a bit noisy

            • Average rating
          • Older travelers

            it was close to transport, ferry and shops.

            there was no table and chairs to sit comfortably and the tv was directly over our bed and couldn't view it.

          • Couple

            the location was good. Much good food within very close walking distance.

            The a/c was central controled, thus my room was very stuffy with only the heater/fan on. The cool function had to be constantly requested from the hotel staff. No parking provided as well.

            I have no complaints at all,the staff,the location and the room was more than I had hoped for and would recommend it to my family and friends.

            Interesting setting, central location

            Rooms are very small; lack of ventilation makes them damp and smelly

            very clean & convenient - excellent price - pleasant staff

            I was placed on the George street side of the hotel - was a little noisy - had trouble sleeping - but overall the benefits outway the negatives

            • Average rating
          • Couple

            I thought the staff and management were very good, proactive and professional in their dealings. The rooms were reasonable and value for money

            The hotel lifts are extremely slow - something needs to be done about it. Only shampoo and conditioner is supplied (most hotels also provide moisturizer) - This is worth considering. I also thought the compensation offered (50%) of the nights stay is minimal in hindsight as the event could have had severe issues - not to mention personal well-being/trauma. The effects are still being felt and we believe further compensation is required.

            The hotel was quiet and well located. Not a lot of support from cleaning staff, i.e. ran out of tissues. Morning newspaper was a bonus.
