Executive suite

Stayed in an executive suite which was fantastic. Great views, plenty of seating, lovely comfortable bed and nice little extras. Only comments against would be heating didn't seem sufficient for the lounge and we had no milk left for us in the fridge. These are minor details and would not deter us from staying in the same room again.
