Very Good 8.0
Great hotel with room for improvement
Great hotel with alot of great additionals such as plunge pool spas gym, pool table and conference rooms with a brilliant buffet breakfast fit for kings. My only criticism would be that there are not kitchenettes or microwave in rooms, simply a jug and fridge. And the spa pools were not upkept and was a bit murky and dusty.
