Room was lovely with everything you could need. Loved the complimentary whiskey and the GHD straighteners were a nice surprise. The only issue I had was the sound of a generator through the night but I understand there’s not much that can be done about that. We were in Room 509.

No bar, restaurant, room service at this hotel, it does not state that anywhere when you book. They do not come in and make the beds, replenish tea, coffee, towels. You cannot leave your luggage for a few hours when you checkout.
