Discovered the extent of my daughter's fear of heights when given 12th floor. The amazing staff found us a room on the 2nd. So very helpful at an extremely busy time. All praise to them and very courteous staff all round. A very professionally run hotel . Thank you!

Breakfast was absolutely amazing
Breakfast was absolutely amazing and without a doubt worth coming for again! Towels and sheets were really soft and I get skin irritation from a lot of detergents, but nothing happened from our stay (which is really rare!). The bed was slightly on the hard side so kept waking up a lot, but the pillows were really nice. There was enough for 4 cups of tea in the room - most hotels only give you for 2! However, we are still slightly unsatisfied as we had some issues with our room: - The clog for the bathroom sink was stuck and the water wouldn't drain. - The toilet kept clogging - The bathroom door was unable to close - Apparently asking for a toilet brush is an absurd request? :(

clean, comfortable hotel in an excellent location
I stayed just one night and didn't have any meals in the hotel. It was very conveniently located and was just what I wanted - a clean room with comfortable bed and clean, functional bathroom for the night.
