Nice hotel maybe over priced, food expensive and small portions. Rooms are very clean and modern. Not an easy hotel to get to as you have to go a long way back past the airport and then turn around and come back so taxis are expensive

Hotel was good for an overnight stay. Reception was helpful. Triple share room was quite small but very clean.bathroom was quite open. Room service was a bit too expensive. Breakfast was very good and dinner in the steakhouse was nice. Would stay again.
