Great staff and breakfast Very noisy location busy traffic dock land trains and machinery 15 min walk away from the V& A docks though. evening meal not of good quality and always a fight for the sun beds ....8 in total I think 😂

Exceptional 10.0
it is 100% good
The staffs make it the best hotel. All of you should proud of yourself. They greet us by name every morning when we were on our way to the restaurant for breakfast. Thank you Daniel for your wonderful greeting every morning. I truly appreciate your effort and kind understanding for the early check in We received a welcome letter that sent by the hotel staff to our room after we checked in. It was from the hotel manager Micheal Liffmann. The restaurant's staffs provide excellent service,although it is buffet but they are always standby to serve,we can order from the menu on top of the buffet. The house keeping's staffs also very joyous to greet us every morning. There was one day our room did not clean due to unknown reason,but the rectification was done at super speed by the duty manager herself. This crisis only show that the hotel's staffs are well trained and have the ability to restore customer's confident and satisfaction to the max. The hotel provides complimentary canal cruise ticket to the city,it was enjoyable cruising experience. We used this service instead of the van as we enjoyed it so much. The hotel is clean and new. mountain view. I already highly recommended this hotel to many.

Very Good 8.0
Our overnight stay
The overall experience was pleasing and comfortable. The reception of the staff and service received during our overnight stay was satisfactory. However, we felt that Harbour view was not what we envisioned. It seemed rather misleading since the view was more of a working dock area with no ocean or view of yachts and boats in site. This was a little disappointing. We tried to change our room to a Mountain View but was informed that the hotel was already fully booked.

Bordering on the Waterfront
Staff were friendly and engaged with our children (3 and 8). The pool area was great, but we did not realize we had to arrange towels at reception. Breakfast was tasty with lots of variety. Access to the Waterfront by foot was a bit messy, but there were boats nearby (operating on the canal).
