We had a huge laguage and it could not fit into cupboard. Otherwise all was well. Some lifts were not functioning and we had to fit for sometime to get a lift. Hope this can be fixed before guests arrive.

Management need to be drastically replaced. Food not up to standard chefs need to be replaced.This hotel star rating needs to be dropped. The cleaning staff work is not checked therefore the rooms are not cleaned efficiently. Rooms are overcrowded and unnecessary people are at the hotel and security is breached.
