My wife an I spent a night here in early May 2014. We were totally impressed from the professional and warm welcome while speaking on the phone to make the reservation right through to the incredibly comfortable bed and sound-tight windows which made sleeping truly DREAMLIKE.
The hotel is CLEAN, MODERN, EFFICIENT, SPACIOUS, and WARM!!! The bedside lamps, activated by touch were incredibly romantic. Though we didn't use them, both the bedroom and the living room had very nice, large flat-screen televisions with SKY channels. In both the studio and one-bedroom units there is a stove, a fridge, and a sink. The kitchenettes are supplied with high-end cutlery and cooking utensils.
The fittings and features are incredibly luxurious, including a large tub and separate walk-in shower in the spa-sized bathroom. The water pressure was amazing, and the temperature was easily adjustable. There was a complimentary curling iron. Thick, eqyptian cotton towels and wash cloths. There were two kinds of soap bars, organic wonderful smelling lotion, shampoo, and shower gel. Complimentary bath salts were an unexpected luxury.
In the bedroom there was ample space for hanging clothes, an ironing board, and an iron. The king-size bed was AWESOME. A very efficient modern heat pump made it easy to adjust the temperature of the rooms rapidly with both heat and A/C functions.
The hostess was extremely helpful in pointing us to wonderful nearby restaurants for dinner and breakfast. There is a small grocery within walking distance and you are literally meters from the hospital. Despite the proximity to all this hustle and bustle, the double-glazed windows and insulated walls keep the sounds outside and the quiet room was peaceful and felt very private.
We were visiting the Temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on our trip to Hamilton and this was just a 10 minute drive from the hotel.
