JBR ice machines and places to buy drinks for room

Hi, can anyone tell me where there are ice machines located at JBR, and if there is an ice bucket in the room. Also want to buy some juice and water for late night thirst...where to do this?

Hi Lifetouch, can't say as I noticed ice machines or an ice bucket. The very cheapest rooms don't have a fridge but an upgraded room has one.

There's a big supermarket at the nearby Jolly Harbour which is only a few minutes walk. The hotel staff will direct you or leave the hotel by the main vehicle access, cross the road on the crossing and follow the path into the Jolly Harbour complex. The supermarket is then to your left opposite what was the old casino.

The tap water is safe to drink but heavily chlorinated so we took a "bubble filter bottle" which was very successful. You could always take juice from the bar to your room. There's also a juice machine in Hemispheres, the main buffet restaurant.

Have a great time

We stayed at Tranquility (right behind JBR) and they had large ice machines at the ends of all the buildings on the first floor (hint, hint).

There is an ice machine in the buffet restaurant so I just take my bucket there. I've also asked the bar to fill it for me. You'll be able to get some no probs. We're in a standard room and have an ice bucket. Hope that helps!
