A very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The charm is in the old world decor and style - the drawback is very creaky floors!

We liked the personality and charm of the hotel. Not bland and beige like modern hotels. It was like going back in time to a nicer time! The location was great and all the staff were lovely.

I loved my stay at Prince's Gate Hotel. The guest services was perfect. It had hot springs so we didn't have to go to local hot springs. We had a large room with a mini kitchen. The suite had a small table with 2 chairs, a sofa and chair. Still with enough room to move luggage around. It can get extremely hot in the room at night because of the boiler system. There's no way to control it. I would definitely stay there again.

Dear KKHoliday Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback on Wotif. I am very glad you enjoyed your stay with us and all the facilities we provide. I should mention we do not have any boiler system, we have thermal heating panels which heats and heat pumps which heats and cools the room. I hope this didn't took away too much of your experience with us and we look forward to having you stay with us again soon. Kind Regards Gurinder

Love the hot pools. Air con was broken and it was noisey but I guess this is all part of staying in a historic building. Is close to town and has a good bar in the hotel.

Dear guest Thank you for leaving your feedback. I apologise for the issues with the a/c. This should not be noisy and if you could let me know what room you were in I can get this checked. I trust this did not take away too much from your stay with us. We hope to see you again soon Kind regards Yuri Ponstijn Asst General Manager
