Acceptable
The staff at the front desk were very nice. However, we were not told that if we want our room cleaned that we would need to request that daily. Three out of four times our room was cleaned, they did not leave towels, or stock up the tea and cream. The hostess at the restaurant was not very friendly. We therefore did not eat there after that. Given the location of this hotel, I think they could do better.

High price disappointment
Hotel is a little dated. Paid a high price ($409 for a night + parking) Room had no contents in fridge (no water!!) Breakfast was simple and never been somewhere that did not allow me to have a second coffee. Not somewhere I would recommend
