Great views, Comfy beds and Good bathroom However it was disconcerting to find on check in that the dining room wasn’t open for dinner for the duration of our stay. Also, we were required to book in for breakfast but they were booked out. It would have been OK if we’d been offered a pack of cereal! The room was not serviced until we requested it and even the, the dishes weren’t washed. The stairwell was not clean.

The property condition that was advertised was false the place is very tired pictures need to be updated of the premises to reflect this. The room stunk when we first arrived and was not ver clean. The reception staff were very nice. But I was a bit disappointed by the images on Wotif. The pool was not the best and my kids legs came out blue as the finish on the surface of The pool was coming off.
