Morning Amy, I had the pleasure of staying at Little Bourke St last night. It’s important you know how sensational your colleagues were!!! I arrived last night with my Assistance Dog Sara. Flynn and Sarah greeted me like I have never experienced before. Flynn new my name and greated me at the Taxi. Their people skills were outstanding!!! Sooo professional....wonderful anticipation, empathy and kindness. I met Chris and Laura this morning at check out and they were also outstanding. Congratulations on all your hard work to gather the right people. Of course I will stay at your hotels from now on. You have put a big fat smile on my dial. Warmest regards Phil Hazell

Very pleased - location right behind the theatre was perfect, lots of restaurants & bars. The staff were super friendly, thoughtful and helpful. The mini-bar was well stocked and free, and the bottled water and supply of sweets was wonderful on one's way out for the day. Couldn't have been more pleased.
