Unfortunately we only stayed 1 night out of the 3 we paid for and were not able to get a refund. We arrived at our room and were greeted by cockroaches scurrying around the room. We went for dinner came back and then found them crawling across the bed. Needless to say not much sleep was had. Staff at the bar were lovely as was the lady at reception even though I was disappointed with the cleanliness and roaches. Unfortunately we wouldn’t stay here again.
