Beautiful hotel
Reviewed January 2013 by AshKDC88
I've stayed here twice with my husband, and loved it each time. It can get a bit noisy.... but it also provides a lovely view and easy access to the nightlife in Long Street. We had a great experience with the restaurant, the food and cocktails were great. The rooms are comfortable, very chic & artsy. I believe it is worth the stay!
