Great stay!

I knew at time of booking that the hotel would be at a good location but I did not expect it to be superb, central to all the attractions. Rooms were huge with a large bathroom and great bathtub. Staff were amazing at concierge, check in and the bell boy was really eager to explain the room amenities. Only downside was probably the safe in the closet which was not operational.

Happy hour at the hotel goes from 5-7 with wines, beers, spirits and cocktails at 50% off! Also, they make their own honey at the roof of the hotel which is used in some of the cocktails.

Great Location

Fantastic hotel and great location. In the heart of the city. Everything at your finger tips. Check-in wonderful. We arrived before nominated check-in and room was ready. Great house keeping. Would definitely stay here again. Only small complaint... power point in bathroom is under the vanity. Very hard to access. Otherwise all good
