The hotel was a 5 minute walk from the city so very central and set in the harbour, a lovely area. It is close to the city without being noisy. The lobby was done in limes/purples and there was plenty of seating and a lovely smell of food from the bar. The room we stayed in was a triple room and was a bit clausterphobic. The narrow doorway/hallway into the room made it feel smaller than it was. The windows only opened a crack aswell which didn't help matters. I have no doubt this is due to health and safety but nonehteless it made the room feel stuffy. The shower was complicated to work. Other than that the room was lovely, with big leather headboards and a spacious bathroom. The room service menu was extensive and the 24 hour menu was a novel idea that I hadn't come across before. We ordered the snack for 2, which had no tray charge which was a great idea to promote it. The food was delivered promptly and was very tasty. There was more than enough for 2, despite the fact they forgot the tempura prawns on our tray. Breakfast was a buffet served in the bar, which has some lovely big "booth" type tables for groups dining together. The buffet was extensive and well stocked. Overall was very impressed with the hotel it was clean and modern and the staff were very friendly and a great location.
