“A lovely hotel - close to perfect.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Lots to love about this place.

All the rooms are different. Beautifully styled - very boutique. The service is fantastic.

The breakfast is amazing - although probably over the top...the food just keeps coming.

Location it's very close to the city centre.

I've not eaten in the restaurant in the evening but I'm confident it would be good.

The negative is probably that if you have a room at the front of the building it might be a little noisy - so try and get one at the back if that bothers you.

Second time I've stayed here and I will be back as the price is amazing for the standard and location.

Room Tip: Room at the back to avoid any noise. Make sure you get the staff to explain everything in the room...

What a surprise to find such a great hotel in a relatively small town.
The people are wonderful, the room is huge and beautifully designed and the restaurant is really great.
Full marks on all fronts, which is something I cannot remember saying before, certainly not for anything like his price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

am I just a bit old fashioned? A three story hotel without a lift seems a bit incongruous. Not only are there many stairs to climb, but they are narrow and curved at the top, making them very difficult to descend with luggage. The room was nice, 'though a bit bizarre. The only sink was on a table in the main room - with no stopper and no mirror above it. Pardon me, but I think modern design should retain some semblance of functionality. And there is no lobby - you check in at the bar. Other than the weird room design, our stay was enjoyable. The staff was helpful and courteous and the breakfast was enjoyable.

Room Tip: avoid the "Charity" room on the top floor unless you love difficult stairs.

Stayed here for one night for business and had guests for dinner in Manna's restaurant. Can only agree with previous reviews, the restaurant is a lot of fun (casual, young atmosphere, open); especially enjoyed the fish bar (razor clams - well done! and lobster were wonderful). Room was large modern, clean, and beautifully designed. Good wireless connection, breakfast was a treat. However best thing about Manna is its staff; it feels like they're all seeing this as their own business - and you can see they're having fun doing that. Will definitely come back, next time with the family to take some more time to enjoy Manna.

Formerly a house of worship, this eclectic building has become a very pleasant hotel, restaurant & bar.
The hotel rooms are large, airy and very well equipped, from a huge bed to a monsoon shower.
The restaurant had a heavy emphasis on fish, much of which is locally sourced and very fresh.

This Hotel could be in any destination, it would still be amongst the best. Hospitality at its best. Dining is excellent, great concept with a fish bar and fishes from around the world with a twist and accompanied by a very good wine list.
