2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Had higher expectations for the room. Looked a little like a prison on entering the floor. Great views but only one balcony chair and when asked for another reception brought up a foot stool. Was not told about breakfast options, though when asked the porter they did follow up with a call quickly. No aircon which was noted in advert -environmental reasons - yet large inefficient appliances in the room instead. No flyscreen on balcony door (noise from road underneath would have precluded leaving door open though anyway). A bit disappointed especially for the pricetag.
