          Individual guest reviews

          • Single
            5.8

            When I arrived Quantas had not managed to deliver my luggage on the same flight. When the luggage arrived at the hotel at 22:00 it was delivered to my room by a friendly and smiling staff.

            The atmosphere in the restaurant and the unattentive staff.

          • Couple
            7.8

            it was a nice relaxing atmosphere, staff very friendly and courteous.

            our room did not get made up at all during our stay even though we were out most of the day, also we did not have access to all channels on the tv and were not aware of this until we checked into our room

          • Single
            8.8

            Easy, comfortable, friendly bar & Bistro staff...will stay again

            Cable out, and could not get sunrise only Today on tv

          • Single
            6.6

            It is very conveniently located, and its history makes it interesting.

            My room was quite small, and the outlook from the window was very ordinary (air conditioning machinery, plumbing etc.) The a/c plant was quite noisy outside the window.

          • Single
            8.2

            The courtyard was a comforting feature and the room was clean with a comfortable bed.

            I thought the layout of the hotel was a little poor as you had to travel a bit to get to your room.

          • Couple
            7.0

            The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotlessly clean. A+ for the room

            The smell of the corridors in the non-smoking area of the hotel still smelt like cigarettes. The 'continental' breakfast and how there is the option of upgrade - either offer breakfast or don't, please do not offer a half as good breakfast - I would rather pay cheaper room rates excluding breakfast and eat a lovely breakfast elsewhere!

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Staff were very pleasant and it was good to get continental breakfast.

            The corridors looked a little shabby, but the rooms were nice and quiet.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            Hotel had old world charm. Apart from below mentioned items room was comfortable, bed excellent, TV great but would prefer to be able to watch seated on a chair rather than lying on bed.

            Lacked a second chair in the room, lacked a table in the room, lacked a guest lift or at least a porter service for in & out movement of luggage. As a 73 year old asthmatic I struggled with the luggage up 2 flights of stairs to room 145. Fox Sport TV channels were promoted but could not be accessed.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The staff at reception and in the restaurant were welcoming and friendly and there was a relaxing atmosphere at all times.

            The floorboards creaked and it would have been nice to have a light above the fridge where the kettle is.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Value for money -the atmosphere of history at the hotel -close proximity to locations of interest

            Lack of a fence around the guest car park gave a bit of a feeling on insecurity- items in mini bar were very overpriced.

          • Single
            7.4

            Price was attractive for my business needs.

            Noise coming from the Bistro area using a mocrophone during quiz games. My bedroom was directly above it.

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Breakfast was good. Staff friendly.

            Door chain not working. Front door of Hotel inoperable.

          • Couple
            7.8

            The continental breakfast

            It was a little bit noisy the corredor for a Sunday morning... That's all.

          • Family with children
            5.8

            Nothing. Too small and many stairs.

          • Single
            10.0

            I love the big comfy beds and the feeling of history

            The front door is very draughty in the middle of winter. I dont know why it stays open . Needs an air lock or something.
