  • 10.0.Exceptional

    No complaints about the property except the housekeeping staff seemed to have entered our room while we went for breakfast, opened the window on a particularly cold morning and then housekeeping staff knocked on our door and told us to check out as it was past checkout time. The reception staff didn’t have a problem with us being delayed checking out as I was sick but I found the housekeeping were extremely rude.
