Cannot fault the hotel staff - from doormen to receptionists, waiters and housekeeping, everyone greeted me with a genuine smile and desire to help. The room was enormous (in comparison to UK hotels at least) and the bed extremely comfortable. Breakfast in the Tap Room was amazing, and the jazz band on Thursday nights is a nice touch. If eating... More

2nd time stay and it didn't let down. The style of the building and the front desk staff can't be beat. You can walk out the front door and find shops and restaurants or if the weather doesn't permit that stay in and enjoy the hotels restaurant, bar and comfortable lobby.This hotel has become our anniversary getaway!
