    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

    No complaints about the property except the housekeeping staff seemed to have entered our room while we went for breakfast, opened the window on a particularly cold morning and then housekeeping staff knocked on our door and told us to check out as it was past checkout time. The reception staff didn’t have a problem with us being delayed checking out as I was sick but I found the housekeeping were extremely rude.

    Room was very comfortable and clean. Service was very good. I was surprised to find the hotel business center had no available computer for use of hotel guests.
