we booked the hotel for one night as a last resort as our usual hotel was booked up. we thought the pictures on the website were very misleading, and it didn't look anything like wed seen.
breakfast was very poor. there was only one toaster, and it wasn't even working properly. there was three people in front of me in the queue, and their toast was coming out still as bread. after about ten minutes of waiting, I left and went to eat my breakfast. I asked a waiter if we could have some toast as we weren't going to get it from that toaster. he said he would get us some, but in the end I went and got it myself. when I got back, they had fixed the toaster and I finally got to eat it.
the room was abit too small for us, but the bathroom was abit more modern.
the swimming pool was made to look much bigger in the pictures, and turned out to be very small. as a keen swimmer, I could hardly swim anywhere.
a good point to the stay was the staff were very friendly, and they helped us with our luggage, and were very helpful in getting things sorted.
we have now decided to book our usual hotel in advance because we wouldn't come back.
