There are daily tours here at 2pm. Upstairs is its Yard Bird restaurant doing southern fried US-diner food, while downstairs is its Gold Dust basement club.
The air-conditioned guest rooms are fitted with a fridge, an electric kettle and a flat-screen TV. The en suite bathroom offers free toiletries and shower.
Guests can enjoy a continental breakfast in the Shamrock Cafe, which also offers lunch and dinner options. The Gold Dust Lounge Bar plays Jazz and Blues music on Friday and Saturday evenings.
