Jack, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
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.
