“Acceptable standards. Dinner was excellent though.”

Check-in time took longer than expected. Was told check-in was at 3pm but ended up waiting more than 30min after 3pm. More pro-activeness could be exercised to inform guest that room was ready instead of having guest to check and ask repeatedly. Room door was open when checking in. Seems hastily cleaned. But generally, service was alright though expectations were higher having seen past reviews. Have to commend the restaurant staff though. Food and service were excellent.
