Location of the hotel is good. Room was spacious. We only had breakfast here so can't comment on food. They arranged taxi for sightseeing. Staff was courteous& helpful. So overall experience was really good.

The staff are friendly but the service was terrible. They sold the room booked for a colleague even though we had told them she would be arriving late.
