A four and a half star self serve hotel and restaurant is a novel concept but the biggest problem with I had was the bathroom. The configuration of a showerhead over a bath tucked away , concealed in the corner with a swinging pane of glass that needs to be negotiated before climbing in would preclude anyone with any kind of mobility issues from having a shower or getting into the bath. If you're elderly and maybe not as spritely as you once were, forget it. It is the worst designed shower/bath I have seen anywhere ever. It's so bad that when the hot water failed to materialise I was looking for the hidden camera.
As for the rest of the room, its all kind of weird. The stark white walls and lighting reminded me of the opening scenes of the movie Chopper. Harsh. All the furniture and TV are undersized for the room which although badly designed is quite spacious.
As for the service, call me old fashioned but on check-in 'here's your key, there's the driveway, you'll need to swipe the grey thing and here's a piece of paper telling you a bit more about us' seems a bit brief. I also think its generally accepted that if someone asks for a wine list there's a fair chance they might want to order something from it so maybe go back and aske them. It's not a substitute for a newspaper. And when someone asks for the bill it means they'd like to pay so maybe go back and collect it. The $41 steak was average.
I guess it's new. Other than that its difficult to recommend on any basis other than necessity.
