The hotel is just perfect in term of sleep quality and location. It's very convenience to walk to harbour where people normally enjoying sea breeze, or kayaking/cycling/swimming on the evening. I got it on promotion price and turns out it's a 2 x queen bedroom. A bit too much for one person staying.
The service was very fast, and all staffs are very friendly. No complain at all. They even give you some advices for travelling to some areas and able to point some shops which normally sell what you need.
Was here for business purpose for about a week. So gym is important for me. Too bad the in-house gym not available (but Cardio room is available). As a service they will give you a complimentary pass to CityFitness (15 minutes walk). And there is no limit number of visitor from this hotel, you can just visit the gym anytime you want. Wish they informed me earlier about complimentary gym access, not after third day of staying then I aware of this.
To note: Sometimes it could be too freezing to walk 15 minutes before u reach gym in the afternoon (Autumn/winter). But I guess it is not a big deal if it's spring/summer.
Another thing is the internet access could be very expensive if you don't want to trouble yourself keep asking 20 minutes complimentary internet access in the lobby. 20 minutes is just way too short and finishes before you manage to get a tour booking.
Other than that everything just fine and nice. This hotel is the best if you are taking holiday which don't need much internet access and gym to fill up your free time.
