The Room was exceptionally clean and cleaned every day except for two times which was not cleaned at our request. The room consisted of a large double bed,...

Staff are very cold. Customer service non-existent. Many errors made on arrival. For example we started to check in; the man receives a call and tries to help another customer with directions. We had to wait a further ten minutes for him to finish. No proper hotel brief; we only found out they had a bar and gym 3 days...
