      we were there for our honeymoon...we enjoyed our stay..we were not in the room much..but..it was a nice quiet,clean room that suited us to a T...the staff was great ..the price was great and we will go back.

      The hotel is located close to the downtown core without being too close to the seedy areas. It had a nice view of the harbour and downtown from my room window.

      First of all, I checked in after3 PM and everything went fine at the check-in desk but when we arrived at the room door with our luggage we were turned away but the cleaners who had not yet cleaned the room after the previous Guests. We left and returned an hour later. The hotel is showing signs of aging and the room carpet could do with a thorough cleaning .

      I liked that it was pet friendly as we travelled from out of province with our dog.

      Friendly and helpful staff, Large and well equipped room. Good location. Lovely view. The charming path leading to the centre was closed due to the work on the bridges, when open again it is fast and scenic route to the Market Square.

      Some renovation/redecoration/refreshing would make it perfect

      If you want to trade glitz and edge for a decent night's sleep, you would not be amiss to stay here. Large rooms - filled with large, older style furnishings - comfy bed. Decor is well into the beige spectrum but the prints are woodcuts and real. The bathroom is a bit on the small side with dated tiling. The water pressure at the tap was great, but weak at the shower head. Mouthwash is offered - so civilized. Everything was spotlessly clean - no fingerprints on surfaces lit by the sun. Vacuum cleaner marks on the dark carpet. Soft towels. Easy walking distance to the city 'centre'. The staff were very professional and helpful.

      I appreciated having a restaurant but found the food little more than average. Sort of institutionalised home cooking.

      It is clean, centrally located, and easy to get to-from. Staff is helpful and friendly.

      Older hotel; I have stayed there before so I was familar with it. Decor needs an up-grade....the facility is still stuck in the 1970's.

      It offered a great view.

      Personnally I found the hotel to be very run down. When I checked out, I was off to the airport. I was not asked about filling any forms out about my stay at the hotel. The tub was painted over white and had a nice bit of purple showing, the toilet didn't work properly, carpet run down, bulbs didn't work in the lamps. This used to be a very nice hotel to stay in and I'm sad to say I won't be back as long as it remains in this condition. Family and friends from the area were surprised that I even stayed ther once I saw the place. It's just real sad.

      A friendly place, comfortable feeling, great pool.

      Too much furniture in the room, this is not a complaint, just an observation.

    • Older travelers

      It is in a good location and the view from Fort Howe behind the hotel is amazing!

      We were there on the weekend and there was music playing on the top floor (2 floors above us) and off the lobby, and it was very loud even late into the night (1 am). I thought maybe they could have turned the volume down a bit.
