The standard room looked worse than a good ibis or novatel. Not 5-star material.
friendliness and helpfulness of all staff
I found the table manners of some of the other guests quite revolting. The first morning I had breakfast in the dinning room was quite awful, I couldnt eat my breakfast because of it. There was no escaping this awful exhibition as I was sat facing these awful people
the comfortable room
we had dinner at the restaurant one evening, and compared to the price, the dinner was not good, further more the hotel is in our oppinion not a 5 star hotel, maybe four stars, not five.
