Great spot for Waterfront if you are on a budget and can't afford the big posh ones! It had everything we needed and felt safe and the staff were all lovely. I was impressed with the spaciousness of the room and en suite for a town property. Our room had double aspect windows and a view over SIgnal Hill. Lovely.
