If you don't mind paying 5 star prices for a naff 3 star hotel, then this is the one for you! The staff were friendly, but seemed a little at sea. The hotel was unfinished - spa not operational, roof top bar unfinished, cinema on demand in your room not working etc etc. The cleaning wasn't really up to standard, though to give the staff their due, the rooms were so dark, it was hard to do much more than grope your way round, whilst trying not to impale yourself on the razor sharp contemporary (for that read uncomfortable) furniture crammed into a much too small space.
The all singing, all dancing electric loo was a novelty, though we did find the heated seat a little disconcerting and as for the roasting hot, heated floor in the bathroom - why this was necessary in a 40 degree heat was beyond us, but did come in handy when drying off the cossies after a trip to the thermal baths. The decor was modern but with a faintly sleazy brothel twist - engraved mirrors, carpeted walls in an unpleasant blood red and so on. The final slap in the face was the £70.00 mini bar bill on our departure - we hadn't been near the damned thing!
