First of all, it is not on Eyre square, but just off it.
On arrival we were vaguely greeted and given keys to the rooms. The rooms were in poor decor but relatively clean, and the shower was powerful and refreshing.
Despite being a 3 star hotel, I have stayed in the 5 star harbour hotel previously for cheaper.....???
The food in the bar was good, but the breakfast was absolutely terrible. The eggs could have been used for clay pidgeons, and I nearly broke a tooth on something in the sausage, the fry up components were not quality items.
Having a 24hr reception, you leave the key behind as you go out. On returning, I asked for key 215, sorry no, 315. The reception person gave me any key I asked without challenge. My collegues did likewise, this is a disturbing scenario if you are going to leave valuables in the room.
At 5am Sunday morning, I woke to a disturbance from other guests which lasted far too long before the night porter came up to sort, hence very little sleep.
On leaving, I was charged for a room (twin) despite being the solo occupant, so I would ask for clarification from them as they quote pps too.
Overall, I would not stay again, and prefer to opt for the tent city of anti government hippies at the other end of Eyre Square.
