Highly Recommended. A++ Hotel / Staff
A+++.. i highly recommend this hotel. It felt classy as soon as i stepped into reception. The staff are at the top end of hospitality.. very professional and very accommodating.. so a big thank you to them. Very safe in these times of Covid.. they obviously have put a system in place to ensure their guest are safe and yet comfortable. The rooms are extremely clean and what i really liked was the clever way they have designed the bathroom to be able to swing the door and have a private area to use the toilet. Great layout.. very smart and well designed.

Travelled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
Dusty. No extra sheets or pillow cases for our pullout. Check in was awful. Random person with no id badge attempt to help me but I was reluctant to give any information. Then the actual worker came out I told him this random person with no badge tried helping me but the worker wasn't concerned. A/c was warm. We stayed in June and the room was so hot the a/c didn't work. No room service. Asked for extra bath towels and we only got hand towels. All very disappointing.
