Thank you for your review. I’m happy that you found our location to be convenient.

Stayed one night for business. Absolutely delighted from the moment I arrived to the moment I left (and I do a lot of business travel staying in city CBDs, so have some context for comparison).

Aside from being a beautiful modern hotel I was very grateful for the help of the housekeeping team. We left behing a pair of pretty expensive and new trousers behind. I was pretty frantic and they called me back immediately and arranged to ship it back to me. This kind of service matters to me.
