Very good 8.0
Convenient
Modern hotel with a great breakfast. But lacks security control, anyone can get to the rooms.

Exceptional 10.0
A wonderful stay.
We were a little sceptical about the reviews, however we had a great stay and actually booked another night. We stayed in a luxury studio, fabulous. Please note that the hotels.com map is WRONG for this hotel. It is near the Protea hotel and Waterfront Quay area. Recommend the Drydock and Bazala restaurants, both very good, especially the tempura crocodile tails!!!
