This modern hotel was in a convenient location to shopping and restaurants. The décor is lovely and their milkshakes were tasty. The only thing that was hard to get used to was the lack of bathing privacy. Also the noise of the shower is loud for whoever is trying to sleep.

The hotel has a Hollywood motif and is very contemporary. Absolutely one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in. The shower is to die for with a rain shower. It does not have a bathroom per se', it does have a closed in toilet though. The room is separated from the bathroom by a curtain, so the room...

Conveniently located, in the heart of a shopping and food district. Hotel staff were all pleasant, friendly and nothing was too much to ask. The room was spacious and comfortable.

I really love the fire and ice hotel It is fresh and lovely. The rooms are simple but clean and spacious. Not too many frills but all so good i didn't have time to enjoy the breakfast but there is coffee and tea in the room. My room was on the first floor and was a bit noisy.

Nicely located in the slightly artificial Melrose Arch, the hotel is clean, modern and comfortable. The added bonus of two weeks for £700 a symptom of the weak Rand. Friendly staff, good food in the bar and strong, reliable wifi all add up to a great experience. Recommended.
