Great room and location. Toilet seat broken which was annoying, would have been obvious to who ever cleaned it and they did not get it fixed

Book a better class of room next time . . .
Our bed was only a double which was unexpected as we have stayed here many times and always had a queen. It made for a very cramped sleep. Also, apparently because of Covid-19 restrictions, our room wasn't made up and we had no fresh towels. We were later told that we could have asked for fresh ones at Reception, but it would have been handy to know this up front. As a maintenance issue, the shower floods out all over the bathroom floor and into the carpet of the bedroom.

Modern and luxurious hotel
The hotel staff were so accommodating and lovely to deal with. The staff let me have a late check out of 5pm as I didn't check in until 5am that day - which was incredible. The hotel had amazing amenities and was so luxurious and the interior design was beautiful.
