Loved this hotel
Loved this hotel - really stylish, quirky, small and lovely. Great wine bar called Puffin on-site downstairs. Very good bed and linens, bath products, staff REALLY good. Breakfast is a large croissant per person and orange juice dropped off to your door ( on a hook) at 8am. Coffee and tea avail in your landing outside. My only constructive comments would be that a coffee pod machine would be great rather than the coffee pot available. Also no parking except at the close by Wilson parking, which we ended up getting an $85 fine as we couldn’t work out the QR code for a time, and got fined in the meanwhile !!

Unique hotel, few flaws, a favourite
Positive Beautiful, industrial, modern. Lots of special service touches, very well thought out layout, great shower pressure, comfortable, cool bar below. Netflix built into excellent TVs. Free pastries and coffee for breakfast. Negative Parking in the area is very expensive. Heat pump doesn’t heat the room at all, even on highest settings. Hot water dispenser in hallway hadn’t been cleaned in weeks from the looks of it. In spite of the few negatives, I love this hotel and would definitely go back.

Loved the fabulous finishes; every surface, textile, artwork, and lighting choice was perfect. Brilliant service from all staff we encountered, including the gentleman minding the door for the Friday night Puffin patrons. The only downside... Stubbed toes on the wooden bedbase... That's it, everything was perfect.

It was all about the little touches
Staff were so friendly and helpful during late check in. Nice little touches of envelope with my name for checking in. Staff also helped out even though there were clear printed instructions on how to get up to my room. The layout of the room worked perfectly for me and was bigger than expected. Fine finish to the room Included bakery and juice delivered to room door. Love the decor. My stay was too short indeed
