Paul Z. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

There was only one receptionist at both check out and check in which meant queues. I visited the bar one night, and the barman totally forgot my order. It was something like 40 minutes before it was filled. On a positive side, he didn't charge me.

I was disappointed to read your comments regarding the staff, and I will address this with the team directly - we pride ourselves on excellent customer service, and I do apologize if you felt that we did not deliver on this occasion.

Only one chair in the large room which meant one had to sit on the bed No milk for the tea and coffee Shower cold both mornings When we mentioned the shower issue as we checked out our bill was reduced by $200 immediately and she noted the room number and said it would be passed on to maintenance The beds were very comfortable and the large towels great
