On arrival we were told that $100 had already been deducted from our credit card - not sure if this procedure is legal, but more and more places seem to be doing it. We were then made to pay the balance before even seeing the room. The room we had was unfortunately opposite the lift, which I nearly got my leg caught in as it barely fits 2 small adults with a trolley. However, plenty of time to read all the signs of 'dos' and 'don'ts' on the way up as it took forever. The room was very dated - fluorescent lighting and 'power saving' bulbs made the dim atmosphere positively depressing. Kitchen cupboards and handles were sticky on the outside, and plastic wine glasses (?) not a good look. In the light of day, the array of signs relating to rules and regulations that were plastered on the walls was irritating and unnecessary. Bed very hard and hurt my back. Furniture the same, very uncomfortable and extremely dated. Bathroom tiles old, and wall had massive crack. TV reception poor. Found the Indian restaurant underneath a rather strange concept. Had it not been for a fortunate gap between the trees, the 'water view' would not have been visible, perhaps this place's one saving grace.
