We ( 2 adults and 1 teenager) stayed for 14 days ( jan 2013 ) and considered that the standard room was not 4.5 stars, mainly due to the following reasons :
* the second bedroom contained a bed and a wardrobe - there was no side table or reading lamp (the hotel said that it was only provided in the main bedroom !) They did provide these when we complained. You could only fit one side table and that required putting the bed up against one wall. You cannot shut out the light from the main bedroom if that room light is on, ( and vice
versa ) making it totally unsatisfactory if the two sets of occupants want to sleep at different times. We asked about possibly moving rooms but were told that all standard rooms were the same so we didn't bother.
* the main bedroom is a very odd shape, making it very awkward to get around and to access the wardrobe - it's very pokey
*there is nowhere to put suitcases
* no DVD player
* the low backed lounge is very uncomfortable for anyone other than a child, and is also too big a style for the room, encroaching on space
*the cooktop is poorly positioned so as to increase likelihood of burning yourself whilst cooking
*the ironing board cover was so thin you ended up imprinting one's clothes with it
*no basic toiletries were supplied - would have thought for a 14 day stay they could throw in a bit of shampoo and conditioner
*there is not a single piece of microwave cookware
*we only got 2 room services during our stay
Having said all that it is a convenient location and the beds were nice and firm.
Since leaving all the above feedback at the hotel, to date we have not heard from them.
