I liked that it was close to the waterfront and great restaurants. We had issues with noise however. There are lots of signs around promoting being considerate of guests around being quiet. However our room although lovely it was 2 units away from the hotel's restaurant and bar area which was actually very noisy and impacted on our second night's stay. Wouldn't want to spend another Saturday night due to this.

Overall it was a nice stay
The room was nice but the bathroom needs a little spruce up as its looking a little tired. It was clean which was the main thing. The beds were very comfortable & the receptionist at check in was very nice & friendly. My card was charged for items we didn't use so I rang up and the lovely lady on the phone said they'll reverse which was she did.
