Great Hotel and location. Room a little small and needed a table other than the desk. More soft drink options in the mini bar would also be good.

Lovely place. Everything you could ask for. But for some inexplicable reason the shower tap is located behind the right behind the shower screen door so you have to be in the shower to turn it on and cop a blast of not quite yet warm enough water for your trouble. Beguiling.

An older hotel that has been renovated very well. Good central position. Room comfortable and spacious. Parking spaces were limited and need to be increased. While our room was clean the picture rail had thick layer of dust hanging from it. The hall and passageways did not receive a cleaning during our two day stay. We would however stay again.

definitely value for money, the price reflects the fact that there is no amenities that any way I never use.Good location ,walking distance to the national Gallery ETC. the room is immaculately clean, very good mattress and pillows, sufficient air conditioning in a very hot day. Dissent hotel, has every thing one need AND SPECIALLY THE HUMAN FACTOR. The staff is sufficient , reliable and courteous.
