Booked a spa room (as it was the only room available) and the spa was pretty horrible. Bugs and “bits” floating in the water when filling up. There was also mildue on the metal inside the spa, we complained, but the staff dismissed it as “the grout”. Never seen furry green grout before, but I guess the customer is wrong. The bed was comfortable, and if we had booked only a room with a bed, it would have been ok. I probably wouldn’t stay here again for the price.
