Nice hotel, great if you want hip, young, status


We stayed here for a few days and it was a lovely respite from evacuation from our home during the fires. They welcomed us and our dog and offered a percentage off for evacuees. The room service food was excellent and the hotel service in general was very good. It’s a hip hotel for those who want to be seen and socialize with others who want the same thing. The restaurant is also lovely but you have to put up with the vibe I described. Most staff in the lobby are under 30. There is some lack of experience that showed, but not in the most important places. Would definitely return. We appreciated all they did for us.

Nothing special but serviceable

The hotel was nice but is showing its age, the rooms are loud and you can hear conversations from your neighbours. Further more we could smell the cigarette smoke coming in from the next room. This was some what off putting as we where heading to bed. I would add the staff where great but that doesn't improve the small pool that you cant really swim in and the fitness room is just that a hotel room that has been converted with a few bits to keep you amused
