3 of us went for dinner. We had a drink at the bar first, then went through to the restaurant. We had a choice of a table outside or inside and chose the inside one. The 3 course meal we had was lovely and so fancy. The service was very good. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in January. We were very impressed with the service and because it is a boutique hotel the attentiveness that comes with it. The dinners at the hotel's restaurant and divine though if breakfast wasn't included we wouldn't have had breakfast there. The hotel is so close to the main strip and coastal...

This hotel is a charming boutique hotel- full of art and a wonderful little reading library, complete with complimentary port- both ruby and tawny. Small touches, but they add tremendously to the atmosphere. We had an executive room with balcony- and the balcony was a great touch- the swing seat was particularly good. It's a lovely place to Relax in...

What a treasure we have found! This hotel is such a breath of fresh air. It's decor is vibrant, eclectic and classy. The staff are so friendly and helpful. From the moment you arrive they do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. The restaurant food is so good we stayed and ate there for three nights.

Aptly named, a charming setting, good menu options, delicious meals, I think the service let the night down, to rushed to take our drinks order (hadn't even opened the menu), came back as couldn't find the wine ordered and asked us what we would like instead, we suggested the menu to have another look, and then she stood there waiting...

I was here with a large work group for dinner. Very nice food and drink selection. We were in a semi private room which was great as we could be rowdy without disturbing anyone else (and vice versa). Not the cheapest option for dinner but it's such a nice building and gives a great atmosphere. Very handy location in the...

This boutique hotel with its bistro provided the highlight of our recent trip to New Zealand. We had a spacious suite and the best welcome that we have ever received at a hotel. The staff were great, welcoming and just so helpful, particularly Jill and Raymond. Great menu and excellent food at the bistro. Certainly exceeded our expectations, couldn't recommend...
