After some problems with the hotel taking payment and me almost cancelling, I was told they had sorted out the issue and had upgraded me to the royal club room with the exec lounge access so was happy even before we arrived :-)
There were a few problems with check in as the booking didnt actually have the upgrade mentioned but thankfully i had the email with the converations i had with the reservations manager so this was honoured. The room we were initally given had a really bad damp smell and was moved and given a airwick plug in as the 2nd room also had a slight smell..lol after that everything else was great, the pools are nice, and free watermelon is given out in the afternoon but beware that on mondays and tuesdays there was a large group of children who I can only presume were on some playcentre/holiday camp thing that take over the pool area for 2 hours in the morning so this may only happen during school holiday but it did spoil things a bit as my kids (and other guests) felt a bit strange using the pools whilst there were so many other children using it.
The room is a good size, the Hermes toiletries were wonderful and still trying to find a way of getting some sent over..lol, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they were all so friendly and helpful, breakfast is nice and lots of choice. We never had dinner there so can not comment, but if the cakes offered in the executive lounge and breakfast was anything to go by then I am sure it was nice. The hotel is next to the mall and loads of shops witin walking distance so very handy
The only downside is the fact that smoking is allowed in the lobby, bar and resturant area, and this is also a reason we did not eat dinner there as it was too much for me let alone my 2 children, other than that a nice place to stay even if old fashioned and worn
