Room was clean but furnishings very tired. Staff friendly and helpful but facilities disgusting. Hot pool - had to use bodily force to get door open to find green cold filled cobweb infested coffin. Bar and restaurant - don't even walk in the door, we did and if we hadn't paid in advance would have immediatly gone somewhere else. Fire alarm kept going off, no way to contact reception except going to it. Room smelt badly of too much air freshner and taps leaked. Kids were actually scared to sleep here. Was quite dissapointed. Bright sides were card to visit another establishment's hot pools for free offered once we commented on the lack of hot pool facility and super friendly staff.
