The best ever hotel I have found. What you need it is there. Even getting stuff from cars to the hotel room is friendly. Park in front of the hotels get the trolley, and pack. The reception staf is so nice and friendly. And what I found amazing was that they offer my son and me cold water. It felt like in our Indian culture, when someone comes, we offer a drink. The lift is a maze for us but it is fun to go from one floor to another to find the car. I have learnt my lesson take photos of the car and the lift entrance. The room was amazing. I stayed in a service apartment . Every appliances work, and I love their washing machine and dryer. They are so quiet when they do their job. A few times we thought it was not working. There was a fridge which was cooling and the food stayed cold. Bedding with tV and the floor clean from dust. The sitting room view was amazing also. We spent most of the time in sitting room and out in the verandah. Well, we are coming back again. Thanks for booking again and giving me some discount. It is better to call and book with them. Enjoy our fun time in oak

Really great service, the staff are very helpful and efficient. On site restaurant was good and food arrived promptly. The rooms however, smelt like mould. I stayed in two different rooms on level 23. Views are nice, and in room facilities good.
