Very accommodating staff, cosy, welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Very social as guests congregate in the foyer for complimentary coffee in the morning and wine in the evening.

This is just the kind of thing we love to read, culinarykids! We definitely strive to create a cozy, welcoming, and friendly atmosphere -- almost befitting of a set of private residences. I'm glad we hit the mark and you enjoyed sipping on our coffee and wine as well.

Great hotel in a great area

A lovely hotel, large room (the two queen beds one), very clean. Fantastic service and a good safe location. Bed wasn’t amazingly comfortable but was large and clean with plenty of cushions would be nice to have coffe/tea facilities through the day.

Hi, there, and thank you for the suggestion. We'll have a look at doing coffee and tea all day long, and in the meantime, hours are 6-9am weekdays, 7-10 weekends, and all day long at Mums restaurant. Thanks!
