Aircon control did not work, so could not increase the heat Bed was not a king, was 2 singles pushed together, so wasn't very comfortable & kept splitting in the middle No kitchenette or sink, had to fill water/kettle from bathroom sink, which is very poor hygiene Could not connect personal devices to TV, so could not watch any of your own personal streaming services, so has to put up with boring free to air tv

We book an King executive suite, the room was what we expected. However the king bed was two singles joined together, had the worst sleep it was like sleeping in a wedge. When we ordered a king bed suite that is what I was expecting not two single bed joined together. Considering this is meant to be a 4 star accommodation.This was a let down for our stay. 😣

Thank you for reviewing our hotel based on your recent stay. I am sorry to hear about the bed being uncomfortable. Majority of our king mattress can be turned into two singles when required. However, we also offer rooms with proper king mattresses. Please feel free to request one on your next stay. We look forward to welcome you back again. Kind Regards, Nick Thapa - Front Office Manager
