Good location close to the theatre. Facilities adequate. Bathroom looking tired but clean. Restaurant and bar were closed but we were not advised of this at time of booking or check in. We found out only when we tried to enter the restaurant and were gruffly turned away.

Great large room. Was a little annoying having to go to different lift to get to floor 9, also did like all the stairs to the pool. Will be better when the restaurant is finished. Ill come back then. Very enjoyable stay. Was very surprised to find a free bottle of wine chilled waiting for us on our arrival. I will rave to friends about this :)
