    Good location. Good amenities. Comfortable room. Bathroom needed updating though, the bath and shower water took hours to drain away so a shower became a bath

    Comfortable and clean , better than average.

    Room was large, comfortable and clean. Aircon was lousy and too loud to leave on, . .and I am not a lite sleeper, building has a feel of just being a little tired overall. For me, solo traveller it was grand . Good location to city.

    Liked the gym with rooftop terrace and the room was a good size. Parking was expensive but safe secure car park. Hotel was well located and can recommend The Templeton cafe for breakfast (less than 5 mins walk away).

  • 4.0.Fair

    Hotel is in need of refurbishment and overall was run down. For the price it was expensive with limited services and watch out if you have a car as it is $20 a day to park. Worse part of the room was the large air conditioning unit that made so much noise it was impossible to sleep without turning it off resulting in a stuffy and warm room. Positives is that it is in a good location for Granville Island.

    Great position, eateries nearby, walkable down town or to water taxi. White Spot restaurant is separate chain but good food and 10% discount if you show room key. Room dated but comfy beds. Kitchen at top floor good. Jacuzzi out of use.
