Average type of hotel, it did look from the outside a poor relation to the Hilton complex next door.
We were allocated room 1106 which had a great view of the park and a partial view of the lake, the room was of an average size with a small bathroom, the lighting wasn't great and it could of done with a spruce up. Worst of all it was located really close to the lifts and on the last night of our three night stay it was extremely noisy literally through the night. The other two nights were bearable, just.
Free wifi which was a bonus though and the location was spot on. Would I stay again ? probably, but I would ask for a room away from the lifts.
