We stayed here for 2 nights in a twin and double room. Sadly the hotel didn't live up to our memories (we stayed here 22 years ago) or our expectations. It is in great need of refurbishment to come up to a modern day standard, I believe this is currently underway both internally and externally.
We found pigeons in our first room, so were upgraded to a suite with great views (without question), but the basic lack of care eg renewing tea and coffee, poor wifi, poor TV reception, shower curtain /old bathroom and stained toilet, no air conditioning, stale smell in the reception and hall areas, made us question why we didn't just stay in a modern cheaper hotel.
That said, the hotel staff were fantastic both on both the reception desk and in the recreation/pool area.
We hope the refurbishment will return this hotel to its former glory.
