Nice stay
The hotel was beautiful and the staff were so lovely and welcoming. The only draw backs to this hotel was the scaffolding on the building. It was a eyesore and covered our view out of the window. When booking the hotel we were not informed of this and probably wouldn’t have booked it as we look for a good view. Second thing was the bathroom was very basic and had a few black mould patches however the actual room was stunning with very modern decor.
