I've just read the reviews, is there any chance you could contact who you booked with and ask for a different hotel? It may cost you but would be worth it reading the reviews.

I've just read the latest few reviews and think I would definately be asking to change to another hotel.

Have you paid through a travel agent...might be worth seeing how much the extra administration charge would be to change hotels if it's possible.

The reviews do sound terrible Louise, I feel for you!

After reading the reviews i would be sacred to stay here, if you booked through a travel agent then i would demand to be relocated to another hotel!!!

I think you'd need to be 'sacred' to stay here mkellyni, sounds like the place would test the patience of a Saint! Lol

We are hearing this story far too often. People booking hotels then going on Trip Advisor.

Read reviews before you book. Can save you from a disasterous holiday.

The saddest thing about reading those reviews is it seems the hotel management have just given up on controlling the troublemakers. They obviously think the British just deserve each other!

The reviews are shocking! I hope you can get a change sorted, on this occasion I couldn't recommend chancing it.

And Harry is right, the reviews have been largely terrible for a long time (but not as bad as now).

I can almost feel Scarborosmoggy's blood boiling reading them! Lol
