  • This was our third stay at the hotel. We were truly made to feel welcome. The experience was so pleasurable that I did start to feel like the hotel is our home away from home.

  • Our experience was a cut above the rest. Fantastic hotel and all of your staff made our stay much more pleasant than we expected. Bottle your formula and keep it going, it works!

  • Delightful. Loved the Art Deco vibe, very comfortable room with charming outlook on a courtyard. Breakfast was really special and staff across the board were very friendly, helpful and professional. Many thanks.

  • Wonderful stay, thank you for the experience. Nothing short of wonderful - made me feel like I was at home, thank you.

  • Amazed at the building and decor and the staff were so friendly and efficient. The dinner was the best we had on our three week trip around Australia, and we had some good ones.
