First impressions are that this hotel offers more than the usual mid-range hotel. The carpeted staircase that comes down from floor two is a give away. Staircases are usually hidden away beside elevators and double up as fire escapes. The usual hot drinks are in the lobby but there are also delicious cookies. Breakfast was self-service and included all the usual cereals, breads, waffle maker etc and also fruit and two or three hot dishes. All this on proper crockery with glasses for juice and metal cutlery. A far cry from polystyrene and plastic! The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and the chambermaid knew how to make a bed.
