I normally stay once a month here, i often get upgrade rooms with club carlson, but the basic rooms are great. New modern and trendy with great views from the upper rooms and wierd but good views from the internal atrium faced rooms. Breakfast is good either light and fast or long and heavy however you want it , staff are routinely friendly and always say "hi". Later on in the bar ther are nearly always some one intersting to talk to , and the bar staff although never in a rush to serve have a laid back charm. Saturdays and sometimes Fridays there is often an interesting mix of guests at the live music, which sometimes cheesey is usually a good laugh.
