My mum and I booked this hotel fairly last minute and were expecting a typical large, beige and boring business hotel but we were pleasantly surprised! The rooms were tastefully decorated and fairly large. The beds were super comfortable and we definitely slept well. The bathroom had a great soaker tub that was most certainly appreciated! We decided to spoil...

There are two 'towers' an old tower which is well furnished and decorated - so the word 'old' is not a negative and the newer tower where the lounge and the spa are located. As soon as you enter the reception, the Bristol 'feel' is there. This hotel is a welcomed respite with a European feel. The staff and very...

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in Panama City. It was very very clean. The lobby, restaurant, hallways, and rooms are elegant, chic, quiet, and extremely comfortable.

It is rarely that I rate a hotel "Excellent ", so let me elaborate... We had booked non-refundable very cheap rate through a third party web site for October. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family, we had to cancel that. The hotel was kind enough to offer us a six month window to use the reservation with NO...

A very good hotel in the business district and within walking distance of the sea front. The rooms are large, tastefully decorated and well furnished. It has everything you would expect in a room of a top hotel including good Wi-Fi. There is a 'turn down service' nightly. The bathroom is large with a walk-in shower and bath, occasionally the...

Excellent facilities, staff and comfort. The bedroom was particularly comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. It had old school charm that many of the larger chain hotels do not. Following 5 weeks at sea we felt we had reached heaven!
