The title says it all. I have been in a lot of different casinos before, from England to Las Vegas, but this one would put anybody off for life. It is far too small for a start, very crammed. The food was what I would...More

This place is tiny. Very busy and quite difficult to get on a machine. Once you get used to it though the place is OK. Special mention to Robin who was the slot tech that night and couldn't have been more helpful.
