When we arrived the reception area is off to the left,partly obscured,it's not clear. We walked in and went straight ahead turns out the reception guys were just looking at us and let us wonder around. Not a great start. We checked in and the reception man was ambivilent. We had a car so my husband had to go and park it himself. I was left with our luggage - we had been touring for three weeks so had a LOT of bags. I had to go and search out a trolley, and stack all our bags onto it myself, the 2 nice strong men behind reception had a chat and watched. Is this supposed to be a 4 star hotel?? After I had finished one of them said 'Oh we can have them taken to your room" It wouldn't be polite to write what I wanted to say to him. So we were off to a very bad start, which coloured my view for the rest of the stay.
The room itself was lovely and big, it was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The mini bar was ok but we had no menu of prices. The sky guide was a month out of date - not major issues, but even the terrible motel we'd stayed in the night before had an up to date sky magazine!
The reception on the television was terrible, so it made a mockery of having to pay for a movie.
On the upside we ordered room service and it was absolutely out of this world, it was definitely good restaurant quality and the saving grace of our stay.
Would we stay there again - not on your life! Thank goodness we had a special offerlthrough wotif and it only cost $100.for the room, it was all our stay was worth really.
