Great hotel in a great location!
Fab location, Really nice room, TV picture not so great and $48 Valet parking a bit steep ( not used) Parking for $24 around the corner for 22hours at ACE parking 421, 4th Ave was great value and only 5min walk away. Great restaurants and nightlife close to hotel. Very courteous hotel staff.

Great location feature hotel
Beauti8hotel with character and large comfortable rooms. Ideal location, if you don't vallet park then parking is in public car parks nearby. ACE in the next street is the best deal. Would definitely book again.

Heritage hotel
An interesting building. Our room was quite close to the bar and it was quite noisy in the evening from the entertainment that had been laid on. The other minor negative was the lack of safe in the room although they did offer small safe deposit boxes at reception. Generally the staff were very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was comfortable with an enormous bed and the decor and furnishings were very characterful. We did not much like the Gaslight Quarter. Restaurants and bars were expensive but that is a matter of personal taste. Would we stay there again? Most certainly yes!
Michael, gbRomance trip
Good 6.0
Nice hotel - poor view
The hotel is in great location but our room overlooked an alley that the hotel used to dump old furniture and broken lighting. Shame because the balcony would’ve been pleasant in the evening if it weren’t for the view of rubbish.

Lovely stay!
Lovely hotel, the only thing that could have been better is they did not acknowledge that Is was our honeymoon even though we had told them in the “ booking comments” whoever there was. Wedding on and we appreciate it was a busy weekend but would of been nice x
