Not so great

The phone CPU was down which meant that I couldn’t phone house keeping or order in. The next day I was told that it would be repaired but it wasn’t. Otherwise the stay was okay. The security staff stopped my baggage at the front door and wouldn’t let my nanny and the children go ahead whilst I settled the bill.
