This is a very very good 3 star hotel. It does all the stuff you expect very well. But, what sets it apart for our group of 10 borderline alcoholic, overweight , mid-life crisis rag tag bunch of eejits, was the way all the staff treated us. I don't think we deserved half of those smiles, or the way the minibus driver waited for us sweaty slobs waddling over long after his designated time had elapsed. Our airport transfer bus was an hour late so we asked the lady at front desk to help. Up until then she was mellow, almost disconnected and I did'nt expect much assistance.....but what happened next was without doubt the most impressive performance at any hotel I have ever witnessed. Two other ladies appeared and they each grabbed phone books. I stood for 5 minutes watching two seemingly normal front desk receptionist turn into wonderwoman and Laura croft. The bloke driving minibus realised our predicament, he overtook a Porsche panorama on the bendy section. We got the flights and I know ....I'll be back.
