Beautiful hotel Very relaxing

10/10 Exceptional

This is a lovely place to stay and the staff were very accommodating. I was however, promised a room when I checked in with a view of the river and I received a room with a view of the parking lot which was disappointing. A free shuttle can take you into town and the staff who drive you are pleasant and humble. Definitely a beautiful place to stay. Make sure to make a dinner reservation with a view on the river where the lights will glimmer as you sip your wine!

8/10 Very good

Overall this was a nice stay for us, the hotel is outside the main part of the central area but they do offer a shuttle service, we didn’t mind walking so some days we walked others we used the shuttle. The hotel is kept clean, and the staff are super nice. Bar Staff, front desk and breakfast team were the ones that went above and beyond to help and also very nice. The Spa is good but not the best, it could do with some work especially steam room. Housekeeping I felt was hit and miss, whilst the room was cleaned daily not everything was always replenished, not sure if this was intentional or not, either way I’m sure if you asked for anything you would get it.
