Comfortable, quiet, quirky, good bed, good value.

I spent a few days here at the end of September 2016, and stayed in the second floor of one of the annexes backing onto Mclennan St.
On arrival, the underground parking is well signed, easy to access, and the elevator to all the annexes lands there.
The reception staff are very professional, friendly, polite, and have customer service in mind at all times.
I think the "honor bar" in the reception is a lovely idea, and reinforces the cosy customer centered approach.
My room was spacious, if a little dark, with a small balcony which I didn't use much. Even on the second floor (the annexes have 3 floors) I felt a bit "on show" on the balcony, although I have to say the street being overlooked is not busy. My room had coffee machine, but no tea making facilities, and although the Hotel doesn't serve meals apart from breakfast, no facilities to cook or even eat food in the room. No crockery or cutlery, no microwave, or anywhere for you to fix yourself a snack or a sandwich. Room service is from an expensive restaurant nearby. A fridge in the room but no milk! One very nice feature is the open fire in the room, which you're allowed to light if you wish. That's very quirky but a lovely homely touch. The lighting in the room was a bit dim for doing any of my office work, even with the curtains drawn back.
Breakfast was a decent repast, and there is free cheese and wine for residents at 4.30 pm every day.
My bed was very comfortable and room very quiet.
A clean, well-run hotel.
