Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Close to things we needed to visit. Friendly service but room cleaning and pick up of rubbish from room could be more often. We left ours in corridor for 2 days and still there when we left. Great laundry facilities and loved the spa. Great setup in general and we really enjoyed our stay.
