The immediate surroundings of this hotel are awful, it makes you want to turn around and go find somewhere else. Pulling up in front of the hotel is chaotic, cars parked everywhere so there is only room for one way traffic. If it's raining, either you sit in your car until it's your turn to get near the front door or you get wet. And the door staff are not particularly friendly. The interior of the hotel is fine and the rooms are good for a mid level business hotel but beware of the restaurants! We ate in both the Chinese and the International restaurants and these were by far the worst meals I have eaten anywhere in a very long time, overcooked tasteless buffet food. I complained to the duty manager and was met with a shrug of the shoulders.
