Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness
Staff at the hotel were lovely and very attentive. Unfortunately the room wasn’t cleaned to a high standard etc dust in various places. Finishing touches of the room were also substandard. Stains on walls and carpets. Light fixtures on a funny angle which I was unable to adjust. Lovely view from my room on 7th floor. Room service was also very good. Ideally room would need to refurbished for me to want to stay again.
