Air Conditioner directly above bed very loud and did nothing. No cool air just warm room all night. Shower had great pressure but kept increasing in temperature so had to be constantly turned down so as not to get burnt.

When you have a spare moment would you mind reaching out to me with regards to the room number you stayed in so our maintenance team can take a look at the air conditioner and the shower.

Staff were icredibly friendly and went out of their way to assist me. Wifi excellent, restaurant not that available. The cleanliness of the place was not the highest, bug spray might help with the cockroaches-or a decent pest treatment.
