    Lovely service, lovely hotel.

    Really loved it. Was in the centrum so walking around the area was really easy. The pub was packed but was super nice to sit out in the sun and have a few drinks. Heaps of places nearby to eat, drink or do activities. The breakfast was also really good and a big choice of food and drinks to choose from. Would definitely stay there again.

  • 6.0.Good

    Great chain and I stayed in a sister hotel to this one and had an amazing time, but sadly I was let down by a slightly past its best single room here. The hotel is a little dated. Staff seem disengaged. Their customer services were great after the event and did refund me, but if you're a solo traveler this may not be for you.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Very nice staff, room was okay and breakfast is good, but the work on the addition starts at 7 am. This is not a place to stay at if you are on vacation and want to sleep in, until the addition is completed in a year or two. Sounds like the future hotel amenities will greatly improve the experience, but the hotel should inform guests about this building project before booking non-cancelable rooms to rates that are fairly high.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great hotel but watch out for the local youngsters

    Nice hotel with good rooms and breakfast. Only downside was the local kids who on the Friday/Saturday night circle the block the hotel is on blaring out music at top volume until the early hours of the morning. Fortunately the staff were really helpful and relocated us to a room on the inside rather than the outside of the building which made a huge difference - worth checking ahead of time. Nice location with very pleasant pub downstairs and right on a beautiful/picturesque river.
