Guest Reviews



Your staff were lovely - it was a busy hotel but they they were all friendly. Location was a great central city spot. We were on the top floor and it was excellent as the road noise was very minimal. We understand it was a busy time of the year to be staying at your hotel but hotels know they are going to be busy during January. The restaurant and its food let this place down. We had dinner and breakfast here. Dinner there were a number of items unavailable and what we did have was very average. The mussel chowder would have been lucky to have 3 mussels in it and was luke warm. The poached prawns as named on the menu was just a shrimp cocktail. But I must say the whitebait fritter was ten out of ten. Breakfast felt like we were eating in the middle of a Bangkok market. The buffet was crammed in a small corner and there were a large number of people trying to fill plates while staff are trying to replenish food. There were elbows and plates everywhere while other guests were lined up waiting to grab a table when it became free. Not a leisurely holiday breakfast at all.
