Julianna and her staff are very attentive.

Gorgeous renovated old bank building. Excellent proximity to marina and town centre. Superbly comfortable Formal suite and extras of petit fours and muffins were a bonus.

Hello Holly, thank you for your review we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have thought about taking out the bath downstairs and replacing it with a shower but as our two suites upstairs have showers we haven't. When we take out our restaurant we will make sure the new suites have showers. We hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and value your feedback. Kind Regards Juliearna

Hello Kate I am sorry you found the suite to be noisy and as we do not know which suite you are in can not address the problem. Kind regards Juliearna

Pros: Very comfortable bed
Cons: Too cluttered and fussy, rattling windows and kettle in hallway!
Value: Over-priced; Seem to be trying hard but quality did not justify the high tariff

Hello We are sorry you found Escape to be to cluttered & fussy. Most love our d??cor. We have gone though all our prices and they are heavily discounted. We did have a kettle not wok for one week but this was explained to all customers. If some thing was rattling please let us know as we ask everyone if they had a good sleep and no one has mentioned anything. We are an old bank so would like to know if there are any problems. Kind Regards Juliearna Kavanagh

Hello Mr Hollins We are sorry you rated our value so lowly, your rate was discounted by $100 per night and our walk in rate is a non booked rate as we only have three suites s if someone walk off the street on the night then yes it is discounted. Kind Regards Juliearna
