I arrived at the hotel at 4 a.m. after an overnight journey. Check-in was swift and I was pleasantly surprised to find that continental breakfast was available from 4:30 which allowed me to have something to eat before going to sleep off my journey. The 'green' theme of the hotel is quite interesting, lots of power and water saving measures in place but this never detracts from the standard of comfort and service offered. The rooms are well-appointed, though I was disappointed that, despite the standard tea/coffee-making amenities in the room, no milk or creamer had been provided. This was rectified the next day but only after I asked. The food is very good and served promptly whether you're eating in the restaurant or ordering room service. One complaint; I quite clearly put my 'Do Not Disturb' sign outside my room on (instead of the traditional card on the doorknob, this hotel has illuminated signs outside each room activated by a switch inside) but that didn't stop a housekeeping staff member from hammering on my door and then entering the room while I was asleep. Quite irritating. Still, I would definitely stay here again.
