We went there on a deal and were immediately made to feel unwelcomed. A couple of staff were nice and friendly but we mostly felt out of place throughout the stay. The lobby at the entrance was unattractive with disorganised seating, dirty coffe cups and a tatty carpet. The room itself was old-fashioned with a sickly green carpet. Twin beds had been put together for a double effect. It considerably differed from other rooms and thus, was offered on the deal. Even though we went on a deal, the food was still not worth the price we paid for since the main course composed of fish and chips with no remarkable difference from our local chippy's!!! The 5-course meal was a disappointment overall. Although the starters and desserts were interesting and appetising, the second course consisted of lemon sorbet. Besides we were given the smallest table making us feel uncomfortable.The nights were particularly noisy due to a boiler running close to the room and the pool generator left on all night. The door that led to the garden was left open till late at night and we had to close it ourselves since it was close to the room. Overall not pleasant or relaxing stay and a general impression of a retirement home. Definitely overpirced making the deal seem a rip off. The next day we dined at Robertos where the food was divine.
