    The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble from the doorman to housekeeping. My only criticism was that we were given a twin room suitable for a wheelchair user. The toilet was a bit high, the shower took some getting used to. It was a wet room so everything stayed wet. The only place to put things was the windowsill and you had to walk over the water from the shower so not really suitable.
