My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. We checked in considerably later than we had expected due to traffic, we were greeted by friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us, we were too late for dinner so the staff arranged for room service consisting of sandwiches and champagne. Our room room was breathtaking, a huge luxurious,...

This is a beautifully designed modern boutique hotel, different from many other hotels in the city. From the beginning of our wedding preparations with Bronwen to our check out we were really impressed by all the staff at the hotel, they did a wonderful job looking after all our needs and those of our guests. The rooftop playground is a...

Parked directly outside with quick check in. Fantastic room with a huge comfy bed and bathroom above on the mezzanine floor with stairs to reach, completely different to anything else I’ve ever stayed in. WIFI, Sky TV and sound system all worked faultlessly. Came back late in the evening after a nearby meal and drinks and was particularly impressed that...

This place felt like our very own private apartment from the moment we walked in. Great, friendly staff and very intimate atmosphere with bundles of personality and individuality. Our two floor room was beyond expectation with the only frustration being we were only there for one night. Even though the weather was rubbish the view from the roof top garden...

Just amazing ... not one negative ... great building, attentive but not overpowering staff - amazing food and lots of it at a reasonable price for an afternoon tea of that quality. Would highly recommend - second only to Raffles Hotel in Singapore !!
