This was a very interesting stay!
Reception: Drove up to the hotel and there was nowhere to park (as this is on Long Street where parking is very scarce)! There was no one to even tell us where to go or what to do! ;/ Had to double park, get out and go inside to reception to find out what to do.... whereby they tell us we have to park at a parkade 2 roads away in which we still have to pay for!
Secondly, the people at reception were impolite and did not know what was going on and it took us forever to get checked in.
Room: No complaints about room. It was very neat and good bathroom. No views whatsoever. We had a view of a wall through our 1 small window! If it wasn't for the neatness of the room, we would have been very upset to stay there.
Service: Non-existent. Very unfriendly people.
Location: Smack dab in the middle of Long Street (party street). I guess if you like to party, then this is where you should stay. It felt like a real "grand daddy' sort of place.
Breakfast: Limited, Same breakfast everyday - we stayed there for 4 nights :/
All in all, if we didn't pay hotel-express rates, I would have thought that was the worst value for money, even though it was the peak period!
