This is a very comfortable, centrally placed hotel and is part of a national chain. I was therefore very surprised to be asked to pay a surcharge for using a credit card when paying my bill. I would suspect that a large majority of customers pay by credit card so why not just incorporate the credit card fee into the... More

Nice room overlooking the harbour. Clean and tidy and great service from all the staff. Great position near the centre of town makes sightseeing easy and means you are close to the bars and restaurants.

Stayed one night for business. Great location, fast and friendly staff, well presented, good wifi, comfy beds. Restaurant downstairs cooks a good steak and provided excellent wine recommendations. Gym was underwhelming with only a couple of bikes and treadmills.

On arrival at the hotel 4pm on a Saturday we were told that, despite the fact sheet on their website stating "secure valet parking on-site" there was no car parking available. It was full due to some cricket match at the nearby stadium. I was directed to a carpark "facility" on the wharf nearby, and had to leave our car... More

Check in hassle free and reception staff very helpful and came to the bar to inform us that our room was ready before time. Good room on the 7th floor with... More

This hotel ticked all the right boxes for me - without being particularly spectacular at anything it also didn't fail on anything ... and that is pretty rare in hotel world. My room didn't have a view, but was on the corner so dual aspect and nice and light. The room layout was sensible and spacious, with a little kitchenette.... More
