What people are saying

When we checked into our room, we were blown away. The location is perfect, as it is on the same street as every bar and club worth going to. The rooms were unbelievably spacious-- with 6 beds, we had still had tons of room to move around, a working television, a large bathroom, and even closet space!

The pub is amazing value, the meals were delicious, it's honestly the best value dinner deal I have come across.
