On balance this is a good hotel. However, I was there on business and was relying on using the wifi. The wifi was simply not reliable and was down when I needed it to have Skype conference calls and send important documents. The front desk arranged for me to go to the neighbouring sister hotel and sit in their lobby where the wifi was good - but that is inconvenient especially at 5am. I would not be complaining if I did not know that other hotels are able to maintain excellent quality wifi service (e.g. the Cresta Golfview where I was attending a meeting all week). The room also has a strange design feature: the cupboard is in the entrance passage and when you open the cupboard doors you are effectively restricted to staying inside the cupboard with the light of the passage blocked by the cupboard doors until you close the cupboard doors again - quite strange and a little irritating. The staff was friendly and the breakfast good.
