    Just had one night here, but loved it. Well looked after rooms, great service, great room service. This is at a price point of where you want to stay when you want more than "just a bed" but you don't want to spend luxury money.

    I had used the room service when it was the old Duxton hotel, and it was as great then, but the management changed hands when it was renamed to Amora. So I haven't used room service then.
