Picked it up from a blogger who stayed here before, this hotel is located very nearby to all locations. Walking in minutes. Rooms are nice and tidy, and the bed is to die for after a long walk. Cruise can be boarded from the back and there's a nice bar where you can sit and watch the world go by. Very charming.

We didn't stay at this hotel during our holiday in May, but having walked past a few times, made the decision to have dinner here one night.... worst decision of our holiday!

The food was terrible! I ordered the Chicken Piri Piri, and can honestly say it was one of the worst meals I have ever had. There was very very little chicken within my portion, and any I did find, was of the poorest quality. My partner ordered the sweet and sour chicken, and left most of her meal, as again the quality of the meat was very poor, and full of grizzle.

This is a decent hotel, considering the affordable price and great location.
Many of the shopping and food areas are within walking distance.

We had arrived on a Sunday about an hour before check-in time of 3pm and was not only given a room immediately but an upgraded one with a window and a small balcony. One of the staff, May, was very professional in her interactions with us throughout our stay.

The room and bathroom however had a musty and unpleasant smell. Luckily, we could open the windows to air the space and it was breezy. We also made tea and coffee to scent the room.

Generous rooms with super comfy bed. Well appointed shower room & the toiletries provided exceeded those you would expect for this standard of hotel. Good standard of daily housekeeping ensured that everything used was replenished as with the in room hospitality tray. Helpful & friendly staff throughout. RC is very well placed right on the river front where you can easily walk to sites nearby. Breakfast offerings are cooked fresh, although we had one morning where it was partially buffet style, when the hotel was particularly busy. Don't expect a vast choice, remember this is a small boutique hotel! We picked this one based on previous trip advisor reviews & comments & we're pleased we did. Excellent value for money & would recommend. We had the standard room with balcony. Their lowest priced rooms do not have & outside window or natural light. This may not be an issue for some people but we preferred to pay just a little more to get a window as we stayed 6 days.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and we loved every single bit of it. The room was extremely clean, service staff were very polite, helpful and absolutely friendly - special thanks to May and the other gentlemen at the reception who made our short holiday so wonderful. Your sincere customer service is what makes you stand out from the rest of the other hotels all over the world. RC, you're the best! Thanks for the lovely memories, we'll certainly be back.
