Excellent stay. Only problem was with the inaccessibility of the electrical outlets next to the bed. I requested an extension cord and the hotel provided it.

Ok but not 5*
It was a nice hotel but doesn’t warrant 5 stars. Carpets worn, furniture a little dated. A restaurant that only has a selection of 4 wines and bread rolls like bricks. Sorry guys, it was ok, but not 5*
