One night stay
We stayed 1night and we're not able to use the restaurant as we were late back to the hotel, unfortunately when we went in to the bar to get a drink it was very noisy and there were no available seats, so took our drinks to the foyer when we returned to the bar for another drink it was impossible to get the barman's attention as he was too busy talking to people sitting at the bar. The rest of our stay was ok only you can hear people talking in the next room, but we only wanted a one night stop over.
