Was a great room with plenty of space, high quality through out, just 1 minor issue was shower curtain, was a bit cheap for high quality everywhere else needed glass sliders to keep up with rest of the surrounding... Staff were very helpful and very pleasant, would recommend to stay and would stay again

We liked the fact that the club was next door to the hotel but were disappointed about the club as it was more of a pub than a club very poor dress code and no adult dining areas
