I was lied to a check in about the room availability and it took me over 20 minutes to get through to room service...eventually I gave up and ordered in person interrupting my work. They do not respect loyalty through the IHG rewards programme at this hotel.

Second year attending the Dinner with Santa, my niece and nephew loved it. The food was good and the Manager and staff couldn't do enough for you, the price for this was more than reasonable for the food and service we received.
