3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Interior and vibe of the hotel is nice and modern. But it is very clear that this is an older hotel that just got a few cosmetic touch-ups to become a "QT". Lobby/bar area etc all look very schmick, but the room could be better for the price you pay. The mattress was not comfy, very soft. There was no water provided in the rooms. No power points next to the bed. The bathroom was old, toilet water kept running and no exhaust fan to get rid of the steam after a shower, and we had some noise from the working lift right next to our room. Overall, it wasn't bad but for the price and reputation of the QT you would expect something better.

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Loved the friendly staff, the views from our room (Superior King) and the unique decor. We stayed during the week and managed to park in the free carpark across the road in the evening. We planned our days to return late when parking was available. Shower pressure could be better.

It was dark and dingy. Our glasses from the night before were left on the table in the lobby until the next day. The sheets were dirty, but not changed.

Love comming to the QT, they however need to work on the parking and only sell as many spots as there are spaces. It furstrating to retur to the hotel and find no space having paid for a space. They wer happy to refund the cost of parking but that not the point.
