Travelled with group
Liked: Staff & service
Spacious room with comfortable bed but lacking in extra touches. No toilettories in bathroom as described on website, no breakfast tea bags. Paid a lot for an executive king room but was underwhelmed. Did online check-in which is supposed to be at 3pm but room not ready until after 4pm.

Everything is great except the shower
Location is great. The bed is amazing, duvet/pillows are good quality. Room services available, gym is available. Such a shame the shower pressure is just so low, took ages just to get shampoo out of my hair.
