Hotel facilities were nice and even better than expexted. Breakfast and coffee was delicious and reasonably priced. Resturant and kitchen staff were lovely however front office staff just seemed annoyed and angry. When asking for pool towels we were told “there are towels in your room” instead of restocking the towels on a hot day in a full pool. But other than that we enjoyed our stay

Our three night stay was an OK experience. The good points were a comfy bed, a clean room and efficient staff. The negatives were - no storage in the bathroom for personal items, ridiculous one sheet at a time toilet paper (come on it's not the 70's), no pen or writing paper in the room and the pool needed a clean (leaves & bugs in the water). And what's with a microwave oven in the laundry room? We also paid for a deluxe room which really wasn't any better than a standard room elsewhere.
