The meeting room had high ceilings and natural daylight which made me feel calm and concentrated on my work. The food and service were excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. All the areas I've been to were looked after and the combination of colors is very nice.

First impressions of this hotel are amazing and the entrance lobby is manned by the friendliest and most helpful staff I have encountered. Nothing was too much trouble, this was an important occasion and the staff rose to the challenge. The rooms were quiet and the bridal suite in particular is large and luxurious.
