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.

Service from the heart
Superb service from the team; always smiling. Breakfast spread was fantastic. Site team gave their attention to the hotel guests. Room was abit dated; covers was a bit scratchy; just a bit of update will definitely bring it up a notch!

Nice affordable business hotel
The hotel is pretty comfortable and situated near a number of key tech consulting firms. The food is lovely, service attentive, rooms comfortable. All staff speak English well, and provide free bottles of water during your stay. There's also live music in the lobby in the evenings. Gym is well maintained (and there's a spa and pool), but can be busy in the mornings. I also used the taxi service from the airport, it's safe, but is provided at a cost. Biggest downside are the front rooms; they face the main road and are really loud at all hours, the locals use the horns a lot!! Otherwise a great hotel for business.

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.
