Our room was large and comfortable. But most importantly, it was quiet, allowing us to enjoy an excellent night's sleep. The buffet breakfast on offer was also excellent, with a variety of choice.

The room card didn't work on arrival so was shifted to another room - just one of those things!! On departure, someone had put their evening room service meal to my room (presumably accidentally). So I could of went away paying for someone else's room service so made things awkward at the desk. Breakfast via room service, room cleanliness and bed comfort - was top notch. I'd come and stay again for sure.

Staff were very helpful when I had an air conditioner that only blew hot air. Was fixed within a few hours, after a night of minimal sleep. Hot water was sporadic at times. Probably won't stay again, seems the maintenance could be better.
