Unique, fun but slightly disappointing.
"The experience was fun with the eclectic taste of punk sheep all over the hotel premises. It was slightly disappointing when a group of individuals came in running and screaming at few times throughout the night at 2, 3 and 4 am. Other than that, the staff was easy to work with."
