Stayed one night in preparation for a flight and would have been better off camping.
The room was spacious and luxurious, as the hotel claims to be, but it was also very hot. There are no windows to open and the air conditioning has two settings; loud and off.
The heat issue extends to the pool where the changing rooms were turned up to Bikram yoga standards. Seriously unpleasant.
The reception is placed in an odd position right by the bar and restaurant - two separate rooms - which was a bit unpleasant as both were busy. I didn't use the restaurant because it was the same as being in the bar - they were too close.
It doesn't haven't an airport shuttle, which had been claimed on the third party website I booked the room on. This is a growing, irritating trend. It does offer a good deal - half price - with a local taxi firm, but I unearthed this too late for getting to the hotel.
Overall, this hotel is presently selling itself as a bit better than it is. Without the swimming pool, it's no more luxurious than a Premier Inn. I won't be staying again.
