Fair 4.0
Great location, rude bar staff
Check-in staff were very polite, but the well staffed bar completely ignored our party even though six of us waited to be served because they had a private party in wearing wristbands for free drinks. There were no signs saying the bar was closed for a private event so I guess it was just poor service. Needless to say we went elsewhere and will not be re-booking for next year.

Fantastic two night stay!
Friendly reception staff were a good first impression on my 2 night stay. The room was spotless and very comfortable! Loved the extra touch of the mini-fridge in the room. Ordered room service on my second night - food was very good! All in all very very impressed with my stay, i will definitely be booking here again!
