I have never wrote a review on a hotel but just had to this time! I took my family away for a weekend and found the room to be small and badly lit. The sofa bed for my children was more v shape than horizontal and it was dusty and dirty looking – my children were unsettled all night. At the prices they charge I certainly didn’t expect to have to put together the bedding myself, i.e. sheets on quilts/pillowcases.
The aircon/heating unit made a very strange noise all night even though it was off. Having a family room on ground level that backs on to an outside bar area is an incredibly bad idea! The cooked breakfast was pretty tasteless and the restaurant food is even worse, expect a poor choice and a ready meal from a supermarket!
We were away this weekend for a wedding and all the other guests seems to have had much better rooms at much nicer hotels and at MUCH MUCH cheaper prices, I felt completely done over. We slept so bad that the wedding was ruined as we were also so tried and were home very early.
This hotel ruined my families entire weekend as far as I am concerned.
