Friendly, helpful staff. Accommodation was very clean and comfortable. Large flat screen TV with many channels to choose from. Free WiFi. Room had balcony. Bathroom facility becoming dated, however everything was clean and all requirements available. Very enjoyable stay.

The hotel was very comfortable and clean with reasonable sized rooms. The bed was also comfortable. This hotel was excellent value. We paid about $140. The rooms were very clean and the reception staff friendly and helpful. The hotel is in Bathurst Street so it is about a 10-15 walk from the waterfront.

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. It was clean and comfortable. It is about a 10-15 min walk to Salamanca. Parking is fairly cheap at $10 per day. The restaurant attached to the hotel is nice. I would stay here again.

It was very central to most tourist attractions which was pleasing. Paying for parking was a shock, taking money out of budget.tried parking in the... More
