Lovely hotel and the staff were amazing. Pillows were way too soft for my liking and the room had so many ‘smart’ switches, was a little confusing to work out.

Your service attendant "Riz" at the front door was very welcoming and couldn't be more helpful, I also noticed he never forgets your name, great way to start!
