Very friendly staff

We came to this hotel for a long weekend getaway, and it amply served our purpose. There are 3 bars (one a cigar bar), three restaurants, a tea room, a spa, a pool, etc. We barely left the hotel, and were very happy. But if your reason for visiting is different from ours, beware: the immediate neighborhood is underbuilt (i.e., in progress), and it's a good 20-minute walk across the river to the nearest convenience store. We took a taxi into the city, and found that it was difficult to get a return taxi because drivers consider the location too remote (it's only a 20-minute ride, but they're worried they won't have a return fare). If your reason for visiting is the same as ours, you should be happy with it, but you should beware of the remoteness if that matters to you.
