It was a warm and welcoming hotel in an excellent location. The cafe offered good coffee in comfortable seating. The staff were friendly and helpful and the restaurants were good.
It was central to the business that I needed to attend to
My husband was fishing for the time we were there. The location of the Hotel allowed me to walk to the Botanical Gardens, the Museum, the Cathedral, the beach, as well as do myriads of shopping.
Enjoyable stay well presented room good and tidy
The location in Trafalgar square was ideal. The outdoor pool and facilities were extremely good. Restaurants and shops are plentiful close by. The hotel is spacious and the rooms modern and bright.
No balcony in the room.
The location was ideal. We enjoyed the room,but thought that the Bar and Restaurant could be doing witrh some money spent on them to bring them more "up to date".
The manageress in the Restaurant was a bit "scary". Too efficient . Did not show genuine care and attention in her effort to provide the service.
The location is excellent and the size of the rooms good. We also liked using the gym and pool
The room was extremely hot with no air conditioning. The food is very average in Oceania and the bar is very dated.
Great place to stay, close to all the things we wished to do - the only let down was no soap in the room the first night.
The fountain is a bit of a distraction in the foyer.The classic car great
The proximity to central city means that you have access to restaurants, bars, shopping, marina etc
This was our 2nd visit so the hotel was familiar.Staff friendly and efficient,perfect location as we did not have a car. Relaxing and calm surroundings.
the location and excellent room for 3 people.
we were there over a long weekend and their feature Japanese restuarant was closed!!
I liked our dinner at Miyazu Teppan Yaki Restaurant. Our Chef was from Phillipines (Alvin?) (sorry I can't recall his name) but he was really friendly and gave us a great experience.
the convienence of the accommodation - we could walk everywhere - also very clean and friendly
It was quiet, central location, staff were very helpful and friendly, excellent room.
The room was really functional and classy and the location was walking distance to everything I wanted to see and do.
