Exceptional 10.0
This is a really good Hotel in a great position within easy walking distance to the harbour and city centre.I would find difficult to criticise anything about the Hotel from my stay here and can not see why any other guest would if they decide to stop. The included Breakfast is very good the best we had out of all the hotels we stopped at on this trip with a good selection that should cover most peoples taste.

Excellent friendly hotel in great location
Loved this hotel. Staff were very friendly right from check in throughout entire stay. Breakfast was great, good quality, wide range to choose from and friendly chef. Excellent location, only a few mins walk away from the harbour.

Good 6.0
The location was fabulous but everything else was distinctly average. The rooms were very tired and the bathroom fittings are very dated. The breakfast was ok, but nothing in comparison with some of the other buffets we’d had on our trip. The room was quite small with minimal room to put our stuff down given there were two adults and a child in the room.

Excellent location, fair price, nice rooms and friendly staff. I would stay there again.
Sergio, ca1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Would probably stay somewhere else next time
The accommodation was supposed to include a breakfast. There was no details on what kind of breakfast was provided. The pictures that were shown showed hot burner ovens so we thought there should be eggs, bacon, pancakes etc. Nothing like that, unfortunately. Was pretty lacklustre actually. The room was super nice but the building itself is quite outdated and could use some sprucing up. Kind of weird but there was a bunch of unexplained noises throughout the night. If we didn’t know any better we would think the place was haunted LOL.

Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic hotel, highly recommended
This hotel is an absolute gem. The location is very central and you can walk to all sightseeing spots in the downtown area within less than 20 minutes, right around the corner from the Legislature. The front desk was super nice, welcoming and helpful. The room and bathroom were super clean, cozy and comfortable. We even had a balcony and it was quiet. They offered continental breakfast with a variety of choices and even had real fresh fruit salad. We like it so much we added another night. We would most definitely stay at this hotel again and would highly recommend it. Thanks for everything!

Would return!
It was a really nice room, amazing location, decent price, nice staff, good parking. The building does look old from the outside but don’t let that deter you away, it was a great stay!
