I enjoyed our stay. Suggestions: 1. I do not understand why you don't have the larger Nespresso machine which uses the larger capsules and can provide a larger cup of coffee 2. the coffee capsules were not topped up each day 3. Water pressure in shower was poor

We had just such a lovely stay sadly only for one night at this gem of a hotel. The staff were so friendly, welcoming and helpful from start to finish. The food is amazing, we dined there in the evening. Go for the breakfast which was included in our stay, it’s fantastic! You may feel you’re out of the city but everything is much near than you think. Great rooftop bar to watch the sunset to end the day!

We liked the fact that it was close to cafes and restaurants in New Farm. Felt the room was too dark and the bathroom / toilet had no door , only a shower curtain separating the bed from the bathroom/toilet . No privacy !
