8/10 Very good

Could be Better
Warm and comfortable environment. Service could be better. They could not offer razor because they didn't have any in stock. I was promised a face cloth that was never supplied. Service took too long in restaurant because I couldn't tell that my input hadn't gone through. Strange also that menus were only on the small screens, meaning that i couldn't tell what was available for breakfast the next day.
