When we checked in, the rooms we were given didn't match what we had paid for (no sea view, even though we had booked a sea view 7 months earlier). The hotel couldn't do anything about it that evening, but the next day we were given new rooms with excellent views - just what the doctor ordered. The bar on... More

Visited the 17th floor cafe which is open to non residents, views were superb and I could of happily stayed hours. Drinks and snacks were reasonable which surprised me as I thought they would charge a premium. You may have to put up with one in the interior tables until someone moves as it gets very busy.
