A mixed review
Small rooms. Very basic for the price. Good shower and excellent location for car rental. Not good value compared to other hotels. Big disappointment with service as we booked a taxi to the airport through the hotel transportation desk at a fixed price. We were told the taxi would definitely arrive and that it was a limousine and bags world be collected from our room before hand. This never happened and the staff were confused when I enquired where our transport was. In other words it had not been put into place. Not good for such an expensive hotel. To their credit the management arranged a cab but it an unpleasant end to a great holiday in Canada.

2/10 Poor

It’s a hard pass
Horribly small room. Bed was a very very mattress with a detached cushion on top. Uncomfortable as hell! Rug was gross. Ordered room service which never came. Reception didn’t care when I told her how horrible the stay was. Loud and noisy. Tiny bathroom.
