clean and very tidy hotel . Good and quiet environment

    I have stayed at the Birchwood on numerous occassions in the past and was happy with the service levels. This last trip was a dissapointment, resulting from the "Couldn't care less" attitude of staff encountered over my wife and I experiencing what we believed to be food poisoning. I asked to meet the manager or the assistant, but both were unavailable. So I left my contacts as requested at reception and have yet to have a response.

    The breakfast bar was fabulous with a sumptuous variety and abundance of everything breafast/brunch related. Not your typical complimentary continental breakfast, that's for sure. Getting to the hotel from the airport was a little annoying as we had to wait nearly an hour for the next shuttle, even though it was clearly stated that the shuttle runs every hour at 10 minutes past the hour. When you're jetlagged and it's 9:00 at night yo8 kust want to get to your bed. But the shuttle was very comfortable and the driver efficient in getting bags loaded and on the move quickly. All in all, a lovely place to stay at a reasonable rate. I will stay there again.
