After booking and Paying through wotif was asked to pay another $90 on checking in even though put in search looking for a room for 2 adults and 3 children added in their ages Paid extra as other what I had paid was non refundable Only 2 sets of cup glasses spoons face washers etc in room so if asked to pay $30 for each child would expect enough stuff Microwave would be good in a family room at 4 star Not cleaned properly as old soap left in shower, empty toilet paper roll Torn dirty lounge in room Keeps looking as sure you will find better place for the amount they are asking Definitely not 4 star

Hi Joanne, I'm sorry if booking through an outside agent gets confusing however as you saw when I printed out the booking for you it was only for 2 adults, with no children included. If guests need anything for their rooms, including a microwave they are available from reception you only had to ask and we would have brought anything extra over that you needed, instead of you going without and then later complaining about it. I feel that you are complaining about issues that didn't exist as you had to pay the extra for the children. The fact that one of your children vomited in the room and we had to get the carpet professionally cleaned is alright though is it? Kind regards Julie

Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to hear that you found the bed uncomfortable and will investigate your comments further with our housekeeping team. We offer free on-site car parking. These parks are for all guests to use so we are unable to guarantee it will be directly outside of your room however it would be very close to your room. We hope you will choose to stay with us again soon.
