A very comfortable hotel from the time we stepped through the door to the time we left. Friendly staff. Clean. Great breakfast.
Couldn't fault anything.
Good, clean and quality service
1 plug socket when me and my partner needed to charge our phones.
Hot Breakfast poor
paid wi fi
Breakfast was lovely, bed was really comfortable, lovely location right next to the port, only 10 minute drive to city centre
The air con kept making a loud noise waking me up during the night
Location to ocean terminal, Royal Yacht, and good Bus connections. Excellent Breakfast.
I prefer radiators for heating.
Having requested a quiet room, we were allocated a room next to the lift. On returning to reception to request a change of room, we were first told that we had not asked for a quiet room (our booking paperwork confirmed otherwise) then our room was changed in silence. The options for breakfast were also very disappointing - limited choice and poor quality.
Good eating places within short walk. Info sheet from behind desk extremely useful. Well served by buses stopping straight outside hotel. Staff very friendly
Rating would have been excellent but for position of room 41 on ground floor. opposite lift and next to service room. Niosy!
Snacks available late at night. Breakfast eggs and sausages really good.
Unfortunately hotel ran out of hot water in the morning so I had a cold shower. No bacon for breakfast.
Location, cleanliness, staff
Bed was a bit hard
everything was really good, and the only thing that did not get 10 out of 10 was the bed
the bed was not good, and very uncomfortable, we stayed for 2 nights and swaped side the second night, and we did not sleep well at all, it was our first time at this hotel chian, and unsure if we would go to an other hotel in this chain, really sorry but its the truth,
The hotel is on a bus route into town, very competitive price, breakfast was very good
There was no hot water in the morning, when we told the receptionist she just said that others had said the same. Tried to book for mid Aug, can't book or get prices that far in advance! Is that so they can hike the prices up for the festival?
The staff and bed
The hotel is in an area undergoing lots of development. Being outside the city centre means there are perks like free parking, though it's still walkable to reach many sites if you're up for a long brisk walk, and there's a bus stop right in front of the hotel. I liked the surrounding area, but it is most definitely not a waterfront hotel. The water is not even visible from the hotel property, so the location name is a bit misleading. Rooms were clean and bed fine.
My main complaint is the hotel staff. There was a pretty consistent culture of indifference among staff at the reception. No one was rude, they just were not particularly helpful, friendly or resourceful in terms of having information or answering questions. The people at reception just did not seem suited to the hospitality industry - did not give off much warmth or seem like they liked dealing with people. Also the shower shot out boiling hot water in a regular cycle. So water is normal temperature then every 60 seconds or so a shot of boiling water would come out for just a few seconds but it really burned me. This happened every time I showered, and I stayed in two different rooms over a few nights, and it happened in the showers in both rooms.
The waterfront location.

Noisey air con / heater in room
