They neglected to mention that the restaurant and bar were not open Sunday to Wednesday so had to drive a distance for food, no ice or cold water in fridge and no drinks, no remote for TV so could not watch anything, lower row of tiles in shower had not been cleaned for a long time, fresh plaster repair to hole in wall and powder still had not been vacuumed off carpet...heard every step made be person in room above, reception not around at 6.50pm and actually closed after 7pm, and the 'king bed was 2 singles pushed together....has gone downhill since I last stayed 5 years ago.

Good Afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your stay. We are sorry to hear that you did not thoroughly enjoy time with us. With regards to dining, unfortunately, the low number of patrons dining on Sunday, Monday & Tuesdays did not support these nights to continue being open for Dinner. The operation changes were made regretfully in mid-2018. We still offer Breakfast & Lunch 7 days a week. We have done our upmost best to ensure both the public and guests are informed of this charge having this mentioned on all correspondence, websites and signage throughout the Resort/Common areas. Whilst we understand your disappointment with needing to travel in order to dine out, should you return, there are various establishments close by which offer coach pick-up as well as access to Uber/Taxis and rental car hire. Our Restaurant is still also open Wednesday - Saturday for dinner also. We agree that cold water and ice should be available in apartment accommodation and more care may need to be taken in ensuring TV remotes are available and easily accessible in the room as these sometime go missing. We apologize for the lack of attention to detail with the housekeeping issues mentioned, these were oversights on our part. Our bedding configuration is 'King-Split' bedding, this allows our accommodation to offer Twin, Double and Quad share. The beds are designed to allow for this with zippers on the base to keep King configuration in tact and king mattress protectors/covers to ensure the comfort of guests. The bedding in these rooms are no different since opening in February 2009 and allow the Resort to be flexible in how guests can be accommodated for in our rooms given our wide range of clientele. We thank you again for your feedback. Please do not hesitate to contact us again should you have any further questions or concerns.

Awesome! Stayed 2 nights and found it to be clean, quite and a central location but you’ll need a hire car.

Enjoyable one night stay. Would be better if we weren't put into a disabled access room but everything else was was. Shower floor needs a look at, it seems to spread everywhere after a shower.
