This is a boutique hotel and it looks like one. First impression was that the fireplace in the lobby was welcoming. We had no problem with check-in. When we came out of the lift on our floor, I thought the corridor looked like a cheap apartment, It's very dark as well and worn off a bit.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite - room 321, think it was the furthest from the main street. Although it was the furthest, we could hear the noise at night from the pub/nightclub. We slept a bit late, so it did not bother us that much and I noticed it was quiet from about 1am/2am.
As to the hotel room: -
+ Stylish and good-looking
- looked cheaply-made and the paint has peeled off a bit on the door and on the wall
- trouble locking the room door and found that there was no metal on the door frame, so it did not lock well.
+ good, as all we expected for a 4-star hotel
+ fireplace in the living room, thermostat control heating in the bedroom
- I have a little bit of an issue with the kettle though. The kettle looks rusted and dirty inside. I did not dare to use it, and so we didn't make a cup of tea or coffee in the room. - The "rain shower" was just like rain - it was not powerful at all.
- We find the lighting in the living room was poor. There was only one floor lamp on one side of the living room and it was dim light too. We tried to use the bedroom light to let some lights through to the living room, but it was still too dark.
Cleaniness - average
- two of the bath towels had small grey dirt on them. The room throughout looked clean, but not sure if it was indeed clean.
+ good size, the bed is comfy and clean
- a mediocre 4-star hotel, I have stayed in a good 3-star hotel before and I'd rather choose a good 3-star than this hotel because of the cheap material of the furniture and bad maintainence of the hotel generally. This hotel only LOOKED good and stylish.
If you think of the cost CAD $79 a night was not a bad price, but for a room like that, I have to mark it down and so generally an average score.
