Loved it!!
Daniela, us3 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Basic hotel, convinient for families. Great location. Room could be cleaner. Family rooms had a smart solution with the bunk bed. Not happy about breakfast buffet during covid. (Otherwise the buffet was nice) Guests did not use provided gloves unfortunately. Nice staff in the restaurant. No cleaning of rooms during Covid - fully understandable but it would be nice if someone took care of trash we did put in the hallway.

Comfortable bed. The room is clean. In general it’s great. But they didn’t clean our room at all during our stay. Maybe it is because of Covid-19?

Breakfast, inconsistant. Sunday breakfast was very busy, food stuffs running out and not being replaced quickly. Monday much quieter and food stuffs replaced quickly. Our room wasnt made up whilst we were there. Our boy was unwell during the night and it would have been nice to see the room was cleaned, but sadly not. Overall, hotel was fine, but I left disappointed.

Nice stay
It’s nice that they don’t clean your room. A little more freedom not worrying about the maid popping by. Breakfast is great. Bed is comfortable and staff is pleasant and helpful. Location is great and there is an IMAX cinema across the street with English shows.

The only thing that was disappointing was that the breakfast was lukewarm at best - such an amazing array of choices, but all cold.
