My first stay and it won't be my last as the location, service and general high standards of this hotel was a joy to experience. Very special thanks to Quam who assisted my initial booking and took a personal interest in arranging a suitable parking position for my car so as to minimise the walking distance due to my mobility problems. First class service from check in to check out with the executive lounge and Brasserie deserving special mention !

Good location, tired looking hotel from exterior, but pleasant interior. Lifts unbelievably slow - and one out of service for our entire stay (7 nights) - super busy hotel. ||Breakfast was good, but NEVER changed - so got pretty boring over 7 mornings - staff pleasant but just doing their job .. didn’t try to make conversation etc.
