A great sustainable and efficient use of space. The modern architectural design lends itself to a fun and untraditional hospitality experience. The staff have a high energy level of engagement and service. The modern hotel experience is the future, as space and natural resources become more scarce.

Hotel's Favourite
Got. great reception on our first night with a free G&T and plenty of smiles and jokes. The roof bar is good, even in the service is a bit slow, but BOY does it get windy!! The rooms are scandinavian style - Sparsely furnished with style. Rooms are very comfortable, and the hotel offers great value, I have already booked my return stay at this hotel.

I stayed this last week on a business trip. The hotel is clean, vibrant and welcoming. GOOD - Location, only 400m walk to the V&A waterfront. BAD - 1) Majority of the staff are miserable (and there is a lot of them). 2) Expect to wait a long time to be served, and even longer to receive your bill. 3) The menu choice is OK but some more options would be nice and maybe a dessert choice…. seriously no dessert options at all. 4) The pool is not heated and is more like a feature, as it’s in the middle of the rooftop Restaurant area with everyone eating/drinking around it. 5) Car parking is in the multi storey underneath, it’s not cheap and neither is it easy to navigate. 6) The music DJ’s on the rooftop were amazing, but I’m sure they could hear the music 20km away… and it goes on all night. 7) I had a top class suite, yet none of the rooms have “Do Not Disturb” signs, I had to politely tell the maid wanting to service my room several times to come back later… and they are persistent, it’s like they get paid per room. 8) Breakfast is a set menu with some good options, don’t dare ask for something simple like 3 fried eggs on toast, ooh…. death stare and a resounding NO. Would I stay again…. NO.

Hey Dylan S, Thanks for the feedback. We appreciate the good and the bad. We apologise for the lack of love received from our crew. This is not how we roll. We're in the process of upgrading our menu options to include some yummy desserts. You're spot on about parking, it's safe, secure and may be tricky to navigate but we're thrilled you found your way. Our "do not disturb" signs are on the wall outside your room. My apologies that it was a bit hidden away. We will be sure to brief this to all guests checking in. Thank you for your honest feedback regarding breakfast, our "Yes I Can" was clearly missing and we apologise for this. Thanks again for all your feedback. We hope the rest of your trip was a great one. Cheers, Team RED

Loved it! Just a lot of noise outside our room, wish that the door was more sound proof as we literally didn’t sleep until 4 am and wish we could’ve checked in earlier, our stay felt extremely short! But otherwise the hotel is literally in the most perfect location with phenomenal staff and lovely service, literally everything was perfect but the noise which was out of their control.
