Firstly I will start by saying the photos do not represent this hotel very well. On arrival it is clear that some areas are in need of a refurb, the outside looks a bit tired and the pool area was just grim to be honest. Dirty pool full of dead bugs and mouldy sides, dirty changing rooms and wet and grubby floor. Other than that though everywhere else was pleasant. Our room was spotless, the bathroom was also very clean and modern. The bar and restaurant areas were all very clean and sitting in the bar was a very pleasant and relaxing experience helped by friendly staff. The food in the restaurant was also exceptional and reasonably priced. I feel it is also worth mentioning that the car park barriers are poorly designed, the lift is very tired and far too small and that paying to park your car in a hotel car park is a joke. So all in all not a bad stay but also not a great stay, I think for the price a better hotel could be found.
