Outstanding5.0 / 5
The staff was really helpful. Unfortunately, we were in the middle of a big storm -- so the phones lines were down. But otherwise, the staff was incredibly helpful and the stay was very comfortable.

Ok hotel if you need to stay in this area for work
The hotel is far from the city with not much to do around it. The staff is courteous although a bit inexperienced. The corridors appear a little shabby but rooms are clean. The breakfast experience was very inconsistent, on one day I had all the extra attention and on another was left alone trying to wave down someone for water. The coffee is served in a coffee plunger but in reality there is no grounded coffee visible so it is a bit of a gimmick. They had loud music just at the entry from the disco but it ended by 11:30PM, but if you are an early sleeper, it could be a bother.

Pure business hotel
This is a pure business hotel for those visiting any of the companies located nearby. Good rooms, good gym facilities including a nice pool, excellent roomservice food which is important since there is __nothing__ in the neighbourhood.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
One of the best customer service around
Hotel is rather new so everything was in tip top condition. What is outstanding though is the service. Hotel staff (be in at the front desk or at the restaurants) are attentive and observant down to the details. Even though I had checked out in the morning, I was offered a room to shower and freshen up when I returned in the evening to collect my luggages, so that I could take my flight back in comfort. Excellent thoughtfulness!
