  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This is almost certainly the best value in a hotel that we've experienced in a long time (and we travel a lot). We've never seen such amazing hospitality and so many free amenities. A real first class hotel, that is very affordable. We will definitely be returning!!
