It was a long old slog, he ended up being delayed out there, so he worked seven days straight.

They had Sushi on the night we stayed and it was just gorgeous. I think we definitely got our money's worth. Breakfast was also served in the lounge, lot's of croissants & pastries, cereals, juices, tea & coffee. Delicious!  The hotel overall was excellent.
