Two couples in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. This time we paid a little extra and stayed higher up with a great view. No - stunning view of the city. That good that we just didn't want to leave. Friendly staff. Great bottle shop and cafe each side of the main entrance. We'll be back.

Situated just out of the city and easy walking distance to the cultural hub, the quest on Dorcas is ideal for people who don't need to be city centre. Good rooms and great service too. My room on the 13th floor had views over the city and the cultural precinct
