Good location! Not far from the activities of downtown. This hotel is very unique with a different style in which I liked. I felt comfortable in my stay there. Each room has its own style and design. I would stay again!

This B and B is only pet friendly in one or two rooms. Parking was a nightmare due to Hollywood filming going on across the street, two houses down. All the streets in the area were blocked off, including the one on which we were supposed to park. There was no place designated as "pet walking" area. We went for breakfast at 7:30 and found that no one was there except one of the guests trying to make coffee.

This is the third time I have stayed here while on business. It is super convenient to Front St. and the river walk. It has much more character than a hotel. It is very clean and quiet.

Good location but let down by service
Good location with the potential of being a great stay but we felt it was let down by the service. We had a couple of issues (air con, dirty towels and drinking water) and found it really difficult to get hold of the team, although this is possibly exacerbated as we were international travellers so had to rely on emails and wifi calling would not work. That said, room was spacious and the location was good with nearby free parking available.
