My wife and I enjoy a weekend in the city every year and for the past few years The Blackman has been our hotel of choice. They really know how to look after their repeat guests.

Beautiful boutique hotel. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was beautifully furnished and decorated. The bed was very soft and comfortable and it also had a chaise lounge and a table with two chairs. Parking was a problem as it wasn't reserved so when we returned we just fit in to the overflow car park.

The location for us was ideal, but this is of course a personal thing. Assuming this standard can be maintained we will continue to use it on our regular... More
