I was on a business trip, booking in at 11 pm and booking out again at 6 am, so I really didn't need much. If I had stayed any longer, this would have been a very boring experience. I will not book here on my personal time and account. This hotel needs a serious upgrade. I have stayed in various hotels in the area for the same price or even less, with a far better look and feel. I would also focus a bit on cleanliness if I were them. The staff was friendly and helpful. Nothing else much to say, unfortunately.

The hotel looks nice and the rooms are spacious but... The service and attention to detail is anything but 4 star! We checked in on the first day and that night there was such a noise in the roof of vibrating pipes. Maintenance came and was very friendly but was not able to solve the problem. The shower tap switch was just a piece of wire too. The next day we requested to move to a room where there was not this noise at night. The next day we needed the room in the morning and when we left at lunch time we put the “make up room”. At 5pm on return it was not made up. Then housekeeping came. Again - friendly staff but they took all our towels and some of our coffee cups. But never returned them. When we left again at 6pm we reminded the front desk we did not get any towels and needed cups. On return at 11pm - still none. And it’s taken forever to bring them while we have to wait before we can go to sleep?!! Breakfast was another big disappointment. The hotel does not publicize that it’s halal, so no bacon and pork or a bar. The variety of breakfast is extremely scarce. THE MOST SORRY EXCUSE FOR A 4 STAR HOTEL. It’s the service and attention to detail that is seriously lacking. As another guest reviewed. Only the location is great. Though the staff seem friendly it’s clear that management don’t care?!
