Great location on the Visserquay just opposite the station. But it is noisy from traffic and the bridges going up to allow yachts in and out. The room was very hot. There seemed to be hot water pipes under the bathroom flooring which kept it hot. You could open the double glazing windows but then you enjoyed the noise! On... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel offers single rooms with good space. The breakfast consists of an amazing buffet, with different sorts of bread, brioches, juice, etc, and good coffee, all this for a very good price. Free wi.fi is available.

On the plus side : friendly people clean room good location great breakfast reasonably priced (booking.com) On the minus side: paper thin walls (hear everything) room 12 (standard room) smallish, some noise from outside, a lot from the inside... Conclusion: We would go back but if we would stay for longer than a night we would opt for another room... More

This Hotel/restaurant was a pleasurable place to stop off for lunch, it was a lovely sunny day so we decided to eat al fresco and this place was perfect, We called into several restaurants to view the lunchtime menu prior to choosing this one but nothing really got our taste buds tingling as much as the "Tapas de luxe" (hot...

The first thing to mention in this hotel is the warm welcome. The staff is friendly. After your arrival at the reception, the elevator and the rooms are a deception. Our room, on the 4th floor, was old and very small. The bathroom was too small, you weren't able to stand right while having a shower. Everything was very clean... More

Front desk reception very good and check in easy. Receptionist advised about parking overnight, provided maps & generally was very helpful. Can get a voucher from reception for reduced fee on parking at Churchill though still not cheap. We checked in early and were given a room upstairs via the lift without any problems. Comfortable room, clean with fresh linen... More
