We shared a 2 bedroom apartment with friends on our stay here earlier this month. The staff were great, the place was spotless and surprisingly quiet given it's city location. Supermarket around the corner was fantastic. Can't fault it, will be back.

Great value for the money. We had a huge 2 bedroom executive apt - lovely, well-equipped and clean. Great location - close to the waterfront and many great restaurants and cafes. Close to ferries if taking the inter-islander. Very gracious and helpful staff. Note that it's a bit difficult to find if driving in - we drove right past since... More

At the middle of Lambton Quay , this hotel is close to shops and the cable car Lane up to the botanic gardens. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating. We drove so were a little confused until we figured out the driveway was on another Street at the rear. Rooms decent. Overall, I would return. A 15 minute walk... More

My only criticism is that 2nd bedroom had its own toilet and hand basin, but no shower. I think they should crib some space and put one in. There is... More
