Happy to return
Great Hotel, excellent service and breakfast! Just ask for a room that does not have a window to the lane way- quite noisy.

Before a big day
The reception staff was great and quick The room was big and the bed very comfortable The only couple of things for me was the shower was small and the air conditioner blows on your bed and I could not make it stop swinging

Fabulous staff.
Great position, convenient location. The staff were very helpful and engaged. I chose the hotel because of their philosophy to minimise their impact on the environment.
