Nice little place, warm comfy room and close enough walking distance for local bars and night life without being too close to all the noise. Cute little place with friendly staff. All round I really enjoyed my stay

A first-time visit to Gourmet for our one-night WOW getaway. Central and convenient to the show, Hayley and Dwayne were very helpful hosts in pointing out directions, activities, and even providing us home-made scones on the weekend. Quiet and comfortable. Will be back.

We really enjoyed our stay at Gourmet Stay. Everything was very comfortable and easy. The hosts were excellent - they were really helpful, friendly and easy to communicate with. Loved the breakfasts and central location. We were on the bottom floor and it was very quiet for a place in the central city.
