From the moment I walked through the door to the concierge ordering my taxi back to the airport the experience at this hotel was excellent. The staff are welcoming, professional and friendly and your every need anticipated.
The rooms are of a high quality and have everything you need from iron, trouser press, quality toiletries, thick fluffy towels, quality cotton sheets, slippers, tea, coffee, buscuits and complimentary bottles of water provided at night.
The health and leisure club was great with pool, sauna, steam room, gym & spa bath.
I found it very difficult to leave the hotel for sightseeing
Location wise it is excellent for a short walk to the castle and also onto Princess St for the main shopping area.
Food was of an excellent quality both at breakfast and dinner in the Hotels restaurant.
This Hotel will be the standard I judge all others at going forward. Thank you
