I was really shocked and disappointed by my stay at this hotel. I had often looked at it and thought how lovely it looked, the room I got certainly was not. The expectation I had based on the photos was a small but functional room with a splash of colour and a window. The reality was a small bland white room that the bed (two singles of differing heights smooshed together) just fits into. There is a tv but i really don't think they make them that small any more, and the robes are small, worn with frayed edges. The bed is situated below a heavily wooden blinded piece of coated glass, you can't see out and air has no danger of getting in! Through the night it doesn't get dark because of the light right outside and it is noisy (from goodness knows what), yet morning comes and you get minimal natural light from the coated windows and thick wooden planks. The drains in the bathroom stink, so you don't have to worry about not getting late check out because you will want to get out as soon as you can. The bathroom itself wouldn't be too bad if it was cleaned, get a bit of mould magic on that grouting! The toiletries are not the white company products pictured on the site but the big reusable bottles of unknown brand caged in, with crusty bits on the output spouts and hairs on the bottles themselves, just vile! As you make your hasty escape in the morning be careful to avoid the room service trays that have been sat on the floor for at least 12 hours. In summary ... not good!

My room was cold and the air conditioning wouldn’t warm up, the shower drain was fairly blocked with wet hair. The spa was a lot smaller than it looked on the website. Definitely wasn’t worth the money I paid.

Nice hotel. Access to rooms is awkward though. Also only offer money off NCP that is further away than Queen Street.
