I had 3 nights here recently and was delighted with everything except the breakfast shambles.
The room was huge and very well furnished and the reception staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly. No problems there at all.
But the breakfasts! Unnecessarily complicated menus, a very poor buffet selection, extremely slow service, especially when the restaurant was busy, and unhelpful staff. I resorted to just tea and toast on the third money and even then the water for the tea was only lukewarm.
On one particularly bad morning, I had to wait for a table to be cleared and reset for me, then waited 15 mins for my order to be taken, then arrived at the buffet to find no plates, waited for a plate to arrive for my fruit, ate the fruit and went back to the buffet only to find no plates again! When a plate did arrive, I opened the hot buffet dish covers to find that only cold, congealed scrambled egg and equally cold potato bits were available. Eventually, after more waiting, got some bacon and was asked to pay an extra 3 dollars for a sliced tomato - which came raw! And there's more folks but I don't want to remember it.
So please use the hotel but go somewhere else for your meals.
I also ought to mention that the beds are wonderfully comfortable and the pillows so good I'd have liked to take them home with me.
