The Bad
There were very few negative comments in the reviews read for this report.

A couple of guests found the mini-fridges to be too warm for chilling drinks and occasionally a guest would mention that the room they had obtained was a little small and 'tight for two'. One reviewer said the in-room dining options were limited and available for only a few hours each day.
