“I was wowed from check in where I was given a free upgrade to a Club level room. It’s like you are somewhere else in the world. The room was beautiful, clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and I enjoyed my sleep for all 3 nights that I stayed there. There was beautiful fresh flowers in my room on arrival. I was also offered a complimentary massage. The cuppacino in the club lounge was absolutely divine. Will definitely return and recommend the hotel to my friends and colleagues. Thank you for an awesome stay.”
