The Bad
The staff received mixed reviews, in the reviews used for this report. Some guests considered them to be rude and vowed never to return to the hotel and some guests praised the friendliness and competence of the staff. By far the great majority of the guests enjoyed the staff, however, and gave them good reviews.

Thin and rough towels was second on the list of complaints with a few people raising the issue.
