          • The location is perfect as is a walking distance to the airport, the best Hotel I have stayed in.

            The staff at the front desk seemed uninterested and snobby, and a room that had a window that opened would have been good.

            The heating in the rooms was poor and the irons were not effective, the coffee was undrinkable and the hot food barely warm.

            For the pricey nature of the place i would have expected complimentary breakfast and services available are greatly overpriced. No shower cap either is really annoying for the female traveller, the food in the restaurant is bad.
