                        Individual guest reviews

                        • Family with children
                          7.4

                          Perfect stylish hotel, about 15 min drive from Town Center. Very close to big Shopping mall. Very helpfull staff.

                          Breakfast was sometimes crowded.

                        • Couple
                          9.6

                          The staff were extremely frendly and helpful (especially Lungi at the check-in counter). The buffet breakfast was excellent.

                        • Couple
                          9.2

                          The hotel has a excellent location for a 'out of towner' to do some shopping at the canal walk and the quality & luxury of the suite made it feel like a romantic braekaway.

                          The only minor problem was the access door from the parking area to the reception - some of the lettering on the intercom/ access panel were almost redundant - making it confusing for a first time user however the hotelstaf in the parklot were at hand to assist.

                        • Older travelers
                          7.8

                          Friendly staff. Nice room. Good TV images. Healthy breakfast.Safe undercover parking.Close to Canal Walk.

                          We spent 4 nights/days.( 7 - 10/06/10 ) Why were the tariff for the 10th of June more than double compared to the other day tariffs? Surely a thursday should still be included in a so called "midweek special"

                        • Single
                          9.2

                          Hotel is in a good location for shopping and generally getting around. Staff were very friendly and eager to help. Breakfast was very good and parking was ample.

                          Wireless is not really free as you have a 50mb limit per day and really this I not much and to top up is approx £6.5 per 50mb.

                        • Couple
                          7.8

                          The dinning restaurant was very affordable. I also like the fact that the hotel was not very far from Canal Walk, although it would have been perfect if a shuttle was available (yes, we had lots of bags of shopping!). Hotel staffs were very helpful as well.

                          The Wifi constantly stopped working due to a download limit of 15mb. I stayed for 5 nights, therefore, I couldn't access my work emails etc. I only learnt in my last days that I should have called the reception to reset this quota. But then again, I had to do it everyday, which is pointless. 15Mb nowadays is nothing! The breakfast was too simple, and too repetitive for people who stay over 3 nights.

                        • Family with children
                          5.4

                          Great staff, views and food.

                          Hosting private functions in reception/bar areas.

                        • Older travelers
                          10.0

                          Excellent service we received and the online booking and payment made it very simple, straight forward and comfortable
