Stayed at this hotel for two nights. The hotel room was clean and spacious. The food was very good. Parking was easy and seemed plentiful in the underground car park. I however do not think this hotel deserves four stars. When we first arrived we went to have lunch in the hotel. I asked for the roast vegetable ciabatta and... More
