Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness
Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
Ok, but much better value to be had elsewhere in Mcr. Booked a higher end room, but not worth the money due to limited TV choice and device integration, plus non-working towel rain (not ideal on a very rainy day). Breakfast/restaurant staff polite, but lacked attention to detail. Trying their best under difficult circumstances, but almost every small, nuanced request was only partially met.
