Great Stay

Hotel was very nice and spacious. The restaurant was very good. We didn't get to use the spa any on our trip. They had a very nice large bathroom, shower, and high quality towels.

Shame about the sheets

I stayed at the hotel and on the first night the sheets were dirty and so were most the of the changes they brought up. Not really what you expect from a 5 star hotel but I would of let them off if it wasn't for the dirty towel change the next day. They apologised a lot while I was there and offered me free breakfast and parking, which was a fair bit but the breakfast was too continental for me (a bit sparse). What really annoyed me was that the hotel badgered me after my stay to take down the accurate review I put up. I know rankings are important but so are clean sheets.

Needs that special something

It is not well located. Needs attention to detail. Had to ask staff to make any calls. There is a heliport next door. The hotel only has rooms for rent on the 1st and 2nd floors. They did accomate us in an appartment on the 6th floor. It was decent but the washer machine locked up with my wife's clothe's inside and they were soaked and stained. spent last night triying to dry them.

Make sure you have change for the bus for the way into town. You have to buy a ticket at the machine on the bust stop.
