Stayed here for my boyfriend's 21st birthday, the decor was a bit too gothic and strange for my personal taste, and the room was too dark to do my make up properly. But the bed was the comfiest I have ever slept on and the huge bath was wonderful. We got a deal for two nights with breakfast included- breakfast... More

The rooms are very beautiful. The staff is very great. The location is fantastic (we could walk to go everywhere). But breakfast are very horrible!!! Nothing homemade. It's not worthy for an hotel of this class.

Real boutique hotel with quirky room and individual style. Some really nice touches like fresh coffee on arrival and when came in late room made up with mellow music playing on TV. Happily stay again. Only negative was no bath in my particular room.

Good Location- right in the gay village and only a 10 minute walk to town center. Rooms were decorated well and very nice. However, there is a club downstairs and the music can be heard in the lower level rooms. The bed was lower than the frame so it was a bit uncomfortable, but the beds were larger than average...

Cannot fault this hotel at all. Can't even think of a bad word to say about it. Must be good right?! I checked in on a Sunday night with a friend. The guy on check in was helpful and couldn't do any more to make us feel welcome. Explained everything and offered us tea and coffee which he bought on... More

We first stayed here a couple years ago and remember the staff and service were outstanding. Made us feel at home and want for nothing. Two years later we got married and were flying out on honeymoon from MAN early in the morning. What better place to stay the night before. The staff were just as friendly and the room... More
