Found the staff extremely helpful and friendly, they can't do enough for you. Great breakfast, room and sleep was not impacted by hen nights due to careful way they allocated rooms. Would highly recommend.

for a reasonable price we had a very nice room, excellent breakfast and validated parking in Gunwharf Quays itself for up to 24 hours. It was surprisingly quiet as well, which had been a concern but no worries on that score. Highly recommended!

This was just what we needed. Convenient location close to major attraction, boat trips, shops and Spinnaker Tower. Clean with good service, helpful staff and well laid out. Breakfast choice was extensive but not ambitious and oprovided what we needed.
