“Not the Best of Experiences”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

The maintenance is a problem. The tap handle fell onto my toe; the toilet would not stop flushing. And we arrived after 10.30pm. Ther was no room service. Then it was suggested that we could order through Mr Delivery and then were told that this service was also closed. Then we were advised that the hotel would buy us something to eat and later were told that this was also closed. So if you arrive late carry food or starve.
