Ok, but not great
The hotel room was a little tired. The air conditioning was poor - it was so humid in the room that the towels were wet constantly.

Happy with hotel
Was very impressed we were able to get our room on arrival in the morning after a long night flight. We were very grateful as we were very tired. Breakfast was fantastic Bedroom a little tired could go with a bit of a spruce up.
