Reasonable Hotel

On business so pretty much out all day. Have stayed here previously and found it to be easy to work from. Had a couple evening meals there which were fine. Breakfast is too much of a feed lot and although part of the room package, i did not use and made my way to V&A Waterfront for breakfast. The room has a complimentry 250ml of bottled water and no other stock in the mini bar which is annoying and is something that the hotel should address.
