8/10 Very good

Great place to stay to get away!
It was clean, quiet most of the time, service was 5 star. Beds are very comfortable, towels are absorbent and shower was amazing along with water pressure. Was a bit noisy at times because our room was on a main road. On a separate note we were charged for the initial night and then a change for the two nights we stayed was pending on our credit card. I will deal with that before we check out, it doesn’t make sense however.

2/10 Poor

Brutal front desk service
Brutal front desk. I was booked in a harbour view room and they tried to put me in a room looking onto temporary hallowe’en board… then when I said that room would not do, they became very nasty! I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN!!

Nice but not overwhelming
Nice hotel. Rooms are nothing special but generally clean. I say generally as there was a cluster of the last guests hair dried to the shower wall. Regardless, the hotel is generally clean and comfortable. On par with a mid-range chain hotel.
