Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was well situated - very close to Waverley and Princess Street. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly. The dinner menu in the restaurant was quite limited, perhaps because of COVID. The food was nice though and the restaurant staff were friendly

Staff were very accommodating. Pool was great. Good breakfast- a little understaffed it seemed tho but I know this industry has been hard hit. Noticed. Few staff were in training though.
