This was one of the best family friendly hotels we stayed in anywhere. Staff friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Great recommendations for places to go such as The Grove farmers market which we loved. Thanks to Nick M, Nicky D and Darren who made us so welcome and helped us so much - above and beyond...

Other hoteliers should come stay here and see how this staff operates. They go *way* out of their way to make your stay comfortable and special -- every last person we encountered was 110% pleasant and helpful, and the little surprise bonuses are an ongoing treat. Really impressive.

After New York City, this place looks like heaven. Quiet place, really feeling like home. Great room not perfect in term of design but really cool. Service was perfect, very nice people dedicated. Feeling a little blue about leaving the place.

Found Magic Castle through Tripadvisor. Sounded great and we weren't disappointed. We arrived and were greeted by a chilled lemonade. The room was small (Our fault for booking online through another site!) but well appointed, boys loved the free snacks! Went to universal studios the next day (The concierge had a stock of Metro cards for us to use and...

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June. Paid 25 extra per night for a renovated room with balcony and were upgraded to larger room. Well I say room, it was actually a small apartment! Fabulous and lovely new decor. Living room, equipped kitchen, vanity area, big bedroom, and balcony. We were amazed by the space and...

Our recent stay at the Magic Castle Hotel was superb. The hotel could not do enough for us once we arrived - the staff were very attentive and helpful. As it was a honeymoon trip we were offered a lovely card and a fantastic bottle of wine and some snacks too! On our USA west-coast tour we didn't stay very...

We spent 2 nights here in June and we loved the fact that it is different from anywhere else. We had stays in 5 star luxury during our US holiday (Fairmont in San Francisco, Signature MGM Grand in Las Vegas) and whilst the facilities might be a bit better, their service and attitudes do not even begin to come close....

We (2 adults, 2 children (15 & 12)) stayed here in July. I had read all the reviews on Trip Advisor but was still so surprised when we got there. We had flown from Perth, took about 22 hours and to be welcomed by such lovely people was fantastic. Everything you read about welcome drinks, free snacks, Wi-Fi etc. are...

Slightly tired but clean and functional rooms in a great location with truly incredible staff. Nothing is too much trouble or too cheeky. The breakfast was ok. The staff really are doing everything they can and more with the hotel, with a bit of a hotel make over they would be 100% perfect.

I cannot tell you enough how great this place is! I think it used to be an apartment block. Most rooms have balconies looking over the heated pool. If you look at the website they have pics. The staff will do anything for you. It's a small community. It is not a traditional hotel, so no room service or meals,...
