We were pleasantly surprised on arrival at this hotel. Firstly, it's location right next to James st station meant we hardly had to brave the snow before we were through the door and were greeted by friendly staff. Booking in was easy and quick. We took the lift to the fourth floor and found our room to be bright, airy and very clean. Beds were a little too soft for me and the pillows lumpy but for a overnight stay it was ok. Ice machine was handy though! We had pizza in the restaurant as part of our deal and it was delicious! Ryan our waiter was helpful, polite and friendly! After dinner we went dancing on Matthew st, just a few minutes walk away. The hotel was quiet during the night so easy to switch off and relax after our dancing. Breakfast was the second surprise! We were expecting a continental style breakfast but as we got nearer to the restaurant we could smell bacon! It was excellent. All freshly prepared and lots to choose from. After breakfast we checked out and left our luggage in the hotel's luggage store and headed into the city for a day of shopping. We collected our luggage, jumped on the train and headed home feeling like we'd had a proper break away!
