Spent 10 days hear and would recommend. Was an orphanage run by the Catholic church but is now being updated. Rooms are eclectic but modern. Staff is very accommodating and the restaurant is wonderful. Located overlooking the beautiful Oost Park.

Delicious wines, pretty extensive menus with lots of options, and specifically lots... More

We tend not to eat in hotels but made an exception in this case and were not disappointed. The menu is pretty standard but the quality of the servings was very good.

The restaurant has quite worn look and since the hotel is not located near the old town you need to leave the hotel area anyways so you find way better quality restaurants from the old town or dinner cruises. The value for money is not good here.

I loved the decor in the restaurant and it had a lovely chilled atmosphere. There were plenty of staff on hand who were very friendly. I ordered the salmon which was delicious, and my boyfriend ordered the burger and was happy with his. It's not very cheap but it's good food. Very quick service also.

After eating the burger we waited for ONE hour for a cheese platter with... More

Not a lot to choose between when you want to eat something without gluten. It was ok, but not not much food.
