Very Friendly. Very Clean. A microwave would be useful if I was to stay for longer than the two nights I did, but I understand you are promoting the lovely restaurant and room service.

Perfect location. Spa bath too small for two people and fill of previous guests hair. Didn’t try the restaurant but the food smelt great everytime we walked past the lobby.
