6/10 Good

Booking in was a bit difficult, as 2 desks were fairly close and it became a bit difficult to hear the lady behind desk. Only 1 lift was operated and it became a marathon to get to your floor.

Fantastic stay. Early check in and late check out. Bottle of wine in our room. Room service was not great but they appreciated the feedback and didn’t charge us. Would definitely stay again.
