Service was excellent, will be prefect if restaurant open earlier. I brought young children so I didn’t book the dinner with the hotel as I’m afraid the child don eat the food provided. Restaurant only open at 8.30pm so bring some snacks for fussy child like mine

The hotel, food, and staff were fantastic. My only gripe was that the hotel felt a bit like a maze at times. Which was kind of entertaining in its own way.
