Hi Carol, thank you for letting us know and please accept our apologies for the smell. Our hotel is non smoking however some guests occasionally breach this rule unfortunately.

Stayed in the Motor Inn on this visit, just as comfortable as the Tower room but no views over the water. There was a very nice view of the gardens though.

Hotel is right on the water. Stayed in one of the water edge room on level 3 (top level). The decor is very dated and the room smelt musty as you first enter. The bathroom is also quite small and the vents/ walls needed a dust. The room/bed itself was comfortable and they cleaned the room daily if requested. You can access the casino and restaurants from the room via a long hallway. The casino is also small and the restaurants are expensive for the food you get.
