Exceptional 10.0
Charming, immaculate hotel.
Received a warm greeting on arrival and were upgraded to a larger corner room. This is an older building which seems to be kept in immaculate condition. Our room and bathroom were spotless and the bed was comfortable. Lovely furnishings in the common areas. Very good and spacious restaurant with moderate prices. Nicely located, close to both the inner harbour and Dallas Road beachfront. Note that there is no elevator. Central staircase is wide and well lit with nice carved wooden handrails.

Hospitality at its best!
The warm hospitality of the host led us to feel very welcome and almost personally known! The cleanliness was impeccable. Lovely 'fifties' breakfast nook also. A lovely stay. We will come again.

Friendly staff, clean and heavy on style and charm. My room was simple but had a great view of the neighborhood. Had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs and it was great. Walked in to the downtown core for my event. Definitely will return.
