Poor

Took an incredibly long time to check in-I had booked 8 days online, but on arrival had to amend dates from 1 month to down to 8 days-the paperwork seemed extraordinarily protracted. The lift was out of order and the porter was present for one journey, but nowhere to be seen 10 minutes later or on checkout day-it took 5 journeys up and down two flights of stairs carrying my belongings in and out.
