We got married here in November last year and it was a fantastic day. We did not want a traditional, bog standard, function room wedding hotel and this place ticked all the boxes in being a chic city centre boutique hotel. This was the first venue we looked at and we fell in love with it. Nowhere else could compare.... More

As a bloke a few dainty sandwiches aren't something that gets my heart racing, but a Gentlemans afternoon tea most certainly does. Add to that an option for the kids and the selection potentially on offer for the ladies and I'm sold. But does Great Johns Street Gentleman's Afternoon tea deliver, oh my does it deliver. First off we got... More

The staff were very helpful and the valet parking space a real bonus. The food was BBQ style and it was well cooked, presented and plentiful. The rooms are... More

Can't fault it, unique room design, great location, friendly staff, comfortable beds. We only had time to stay one night, but we really liked our stay. 5 mins walk to the busy streets, bars and restaurants. We had a great time and would return again.

Great hotel, very comfortable. Fabulous room, colourful, plush and extravagent. Great food too except the service at breakfast was very slow. Good location with lots to do in the area. I didn't try the rooftop terrace as it was closed for an event. I would happily stay again.
