5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Excellent service and staff. The main restaurant is a little small to reliably get a seat for dinner or breakfast, which for a hotel of this calibre is unusual. Doing battle through the adjoining food court with the hungry hoards is ok, but for people wanting to remain within the hotel ecosystem it would be nice to have another couple of restaurant choices. Otherwise an excellent stay in every way.
