We arrived from the airport at 8.30am, and even though check-in time is 2pm, they put us in our room, which meant we could shower and try to catch some sleep. That's worth 5 stars when you've been on a plane for 14 hrs. The sun doesn't get up at this time of the year (mid December) until 8.45am. The government is still doing roadworks out the front, so we requested a back of hotel room as suggested by other reviewers. It also means that our shuttle/taxi could not drop us off at the front door, an issue if it's raining! The free WiFi here is very good. In room coffee/tea making is very varied. There is a nespresso machine, as well as the usual hotel kettle and tea bags. There are plenty of places nearby to eat. Try Mellie's Cookiebar, turn left out of the hotel door about 100 mtrs up the road. Great cakes and biscuits made on the premises. Excellent coffee - you can even get soy.
