It's a very nice boutique hotel with excellence service but the room we had on 2nd floor was very small that we couldn't even lay down our 2 large luggages. If we lay down the luggages we couldn't open the entrance door and the door to bathroom. It's a ridiculous jammed space but most of our day is out so... More

An amazing hotel with great service, friendly staff with great food and drink. We was upgraded to a suite for free as part of our engagement. Willem in the hotel reception was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The drinks available all day throughout the hotel were great. Definitely coming back and recommend this hotel to anyone!

From the moment we walked in to the hotel, and were given early an check in, to the day we left the Banks Mansion staff were helpful beyond our expectations. The lobby was a great place to meet other travelers and enjoy evening wine and cheese. Our room was nice, and we enjoyed the canal view. Breakfast was made to... More

This quaint hotel was a winner. The staff was great and gave you speech when you checked in describing all the amenities, from the open bar in lobby to the nightly wine and cheese party they offered. The included breakfast offered anything you could imagine and the egg dishes were cooked to order any way you liked them. The rooms... More

At 5 there is wine and cheese served in the living room and it felt... More
