    The staff were very flexible. We arrived after midnight and the key cards were waiting for us at the Reception. We were given the main entrance access code to access the Reception and the Night Porter showed us to our rooms. We were very grateful!

    The location is superb, it is the train hub of any destination and very close to the station. Also, a live entertainment is a plus factor as it entertains guests who love to be with the group. I would recoommend this.
