    It took an hour and a half for spare pillows to be brought to the room and given I am 38 weeks pregnant this wasn’t the best customer service

    The room was incredibly small. We could not find a spot for our suitcases. The room overlooked garbage cans and the view was awful I feel we did not get what we paid for. Not a good value and we would not stay there again.

    Staff were very attentive, all around. Communicating via text made things even easier to make requests. Note that you need to request the turndown service which I highly recommend (the truffles were amazing!). Breakfast was absolutely amazing.

    Had to request the turn down service. Gym left a bit to be desired (no dumb bells, even just the lower weights.) In terms of 5* stays, the rooms were needing some refurbishment.
