    • Disliked: Staff & service

    I don't know if this hotel has missed its potential or hasn't met it yet? is a beautiful heritage building splendid in its Art Deco character; rooms are fantastic. The front desk and waiting staff are tired and unenthusiastic. When asked what are some things to do in Devonport they looked blankly at me as if I spoke a different language, and two did not know. Restaurant was nice although the advertised live jazz was nothing more than a guitarist playing terrible James Taylor covers. Place could be livened up and the ambience taken advantage of.

    I like the Victorian style- just needs a bit of a tidy up eg. Fold up beds and ladders sitting in hallway and decor could be updated whilst still keeping with the stylr
