Great location, great design, great atmosphere and especially good staff.
The hotel only opened 3 days ago so bare this in mind when reading my review.
No mention of the hotel still being built during the booking process, had I known I would probably have avoided it.
No hot water on the final day,
Very well designed rooms however some plug sockets are fitted properly and you can see the hole in the wall behind
The small ipod stereo is a nice touch although it only worked when the lights were on, very strange..
The gym was not finished, this annoyed me because it was the my only real criteria other than location.
Breakfast was busy and the area to collect food is very small, not much room, things ran out quickly and were not replaced for a while, cutlery, cups, plates were not readily available and so you had to ask.
Staff were great though, always willing to help.
