More than adequate

We stayed for 3 nights in a 2 double bed room accomodation, which included a separate bathroom which we shared with our daughter which was perfect. The rooms were small and compact but nicely fitted out. Within easy walking distance to The Waterfront. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was expensive so we chose to eat at The Waterfront. Very good value hotel, would definitely stay again.

Hotel mit sehr zuvorkommendem Personal

Dank der optimalen Lage ist das Hotel auch nach dem Eindunkeln problemlos zu Fuss von der "Touristenmeile" an der Waterfront zu erreichen.

Very nice city hotel near the waterfront

Very nice and clean city hotel - perfectly located, very friendly and helpfull staff and nice rooms. The Hotel is perfectly suitable if you do not need a pool (you could use the pool of the sister hotel in walking distance).

Super Hotel in zentraler Lage

Das Hotel wurde neu renoviert. Die Zimmer sind gemütlich, eher klein, aber für ein Stadthotel mit super Lage an der Waterfront, vollkommen ausreichend. Das Frühstück ist eher befriedigend, aber es gibt genügend Möglichkeiten an der Waterfront auszuweichen. Die Preis Leistung des Hotels stimmt absolut.
