Room was good, clean and well presented. The only complaint would be the HDMI port does not connect to the tv, and tv settings are locked out to make any changes.

Dissappointed that housekeeping wasn't available to clean rooms and change linen unless you requested it 24 hours in advance.

Hi Elina, Thank for your feedback, our arrangement is to ensure minimal interaction with guests and the housekeeping team. The advance intimation helps the guests and our team to remain safe in the current environment. We do understand that its not ideal but majority of the feedback from out guests has been positive over this, we hope the level of restrictions goes down soon and things go back to normal.

Despite restrictive services due to Covid a superior experience/ ability to change secure additional towels toiletries etc would be of benefit to clients. Helpful pleasant staff who make you welcome.
