Convenient location - 3 min walk from Airport Tram
Great location, easy walking to restaurants and sights. Nice breakfast and bar area. Friendly front desk and dining staff. Room could have been more thoroughly refreshed - we needed to chase clean glasses and cups.

The Perfect Place to Stay!
This amazingly beautiful hotel lives up to its hype. Everything from the unique and fascinating local art displays, to the warm and cozy snug, to the lovely rooms and the most friendly and helpful staff possible made our visit unforgettable.

Fantastic Stay
This hotel is seriously amazing. The staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. The area of town was great for wandering around and just far enough away from all of the super touristy locations.

Throwing Rocks at The Glasshouse
The Glasshouse is okay. PROS: Location is perfect, Garden Room opening onto greenspace is perfect, You're basically in the city center but have the quiet and space of an extremely large garden area. Heated bathroom floors are always nice. CONS: Its overpriced. Shuttle service to/from the airport is not reliable, I contacted the hotel more than 24hrs prior to my arrival to schedule this service and they did not show. Concierge service is nonexistent. Cleanliness of rooms needs improvement. Noticeable damage/wear in rooms and public spaces.
