Its an ok hotel but that's about it. The staff are nice but they are working with an old badly planned building. The air conditioning played up every day of our three night stay. My friend had even worse issues in his room, two days it just didn't work at all. It's bizarre when you get out on your floor how you are effectively outside walking along the walkway. One lift is new and the other one is ancient and you have to open the external door, it's tiny. The valet parking is off to one side which makes getting your bags our there difficult, particularly when you need to get down stairs.
The pool area looked nice and was always busy. Security is around all the time which makes the place feel secure. I will personally try somewhere else next time.
