I have stayed in the hotel many times, most recently last week. The hotel decor is contemporary/traditional. The rooms are fine, the leisure centre is good, the food is ok, no real complaints bar the hotel is very warm.
I would say there are issues with passive solar gain during the day due to the orientation of the windows, it is always very warm and there is no air conditioning in the rooms to cool the room down, I had to leave the door to the half balcony open most of the night so I could sleep,again a 4 star hotel should have aircon in the rooms its not good enough. The hotel is located a good 10 minute walk from the town, and is ideal if you dont want to be near the hustle and bustle of the town.
My message to the hotel is get air conditioning in rooms.
