Check in was a new experience, was treated like or similar to cattle. If fear is present in the staff causing paranoid behaviour it is felt by the customer and is a terrible start to what is planned to be a beautiful night. Check out was very pleasant in contrast

Relaxed yet very professional staff. Beautiful room. Would have liked a small coffee machine rather than instant coffee at this price point though.
