The First Hotel Avalon was a great experience all round!
The city centre location is absolutely spot-on – a short walk to any of the downtown action and the waterfront.
Reception and staff were very friendly, there is a bar on the ground floor which is chilled and in which you feel really comfortable – even when alone. The hotel restaurant I didn’t try but I’m sure it’s excellent, and the breakfast was packed with good health food and a gazillion choices! .
My room – 82 on the fourth floor – overlooked the town square and had panoramic windows all across the front which were great and you didn’t feel like you were in a goldfish bowl. The contemporary design was bang-on for my tastes and I felt immediately comfortable.
The bed was super-comfortable and the high thread count sheets and soft plump pillow selections perfectly sleep inducing!
The bathroom featured fluffy towels, quality toiletries and a great design / layout. For some reason .. there were two toilets which I thought was possibly a bit OTT … and also a shower – it’s always good to have the choice!
I have to say that I had to do a little furniture re-arranging to make the room work and set my office up – there is a pull out section to the right hand side of the room wall cupboards that makes up the desk – a great space-saving idea that maintains the sanctity of the environment for those not on a business trip!
The WIFI was fast and efficient with plenty of bandwidth, and you could get as many devices connected it as you wanted!
I will definitely stay there again and would recommend it any time!
