Enjoyed Most: Location good and the staff were friendly.
Other Comments: The deal included breakfast but it wasn't clear that this was just a bag with a pastry and yogurt not a hot sit down breakfast in a restaurant. I had to spend a further $40 on breakfast. Therefore felt like a rip off to say breakfast was included. Bathroom smelt very bad.
