Pool not suitable for kids
The kids pool was deep and you had to take 3 steps to get to the water and the water level way below the perimeter of the pool. It's not safe. Bathroom sliding door was faulty.

5 star hotel, 3 star Quality
Building / facility wasn't in good shape. 3 star hotel breakfast area is better than Thistle. Staffs not to a five star standard.

Good location
The hotel is near to many eateries either walking distance or a short drive away. It has maintained its cleanliness several times I stayed there. No complaints.
