Aloof service, dreadful bitter pod coffee from the bar, restaurant closed next morning so no breakfast available there (this wasn't communicated at time of booking or check-in), very thin old towels in bathroom, cobwebs in ceiling, front window was left open and only discovered in the morning after wondering why it was so cold and noisy, water from shower floods out to the bathroom floor, shower wash had run out, checkout was not available as receptionist couldn't access the office at 9.30am. Paid her the $8 for the awful coffees from the previous day.

The accommodation was adequate however the service in the restaurant was surprisingly poor. We were stuck in a hot and airless section with no option to move to a more comfortable location where we have been more visible to the wait staff.. We were served stale bread that had been toasted hours earlier and had to request that it be replaced and our simple main course was extremely slow in coming. We had to ask if it had been overlooked. Disappointing.
