We were arricing later than registration hours, so the key was left in a locked box for our retrieval. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was very scrumptious.

4/10 Fair

The room was ungodly warm, and it was not possible to change the temperature, tried everything,but the temperature control would not change, went down for breakfast, waited 10+ minutes for someone to lead us to a table and no one came, so we sat down at a table and were neither given a menu nor any attention from waitstaff, so ended up leaving hungry. Disappointing as the place seems to market itself as a higher end hotel. Also, bed was quite short, so don’t book if you’re tall. Great location, but better alternatives in same neighbourhood.
