It felt as though the staff looked down on us and it was almost like we had been kicked out of there system the second day. Not under for the breakfast and the card for the room wouldn’t work and we had also been kicked out of the wifi. Very disappointed in the stay and the staff especially with the amount paid as well as the bond. Which wasn’t put back into my account the day they said which they are now saying won’t be for another week. HIGHLY disappointed

.....the view offered was not quite what we expected. I expect other if a view was offered we would be higher than level 3 and the view would not have been a cemetery

Upmarket hotel. Our family stayed in 2 rooms for 3 nights, however we were perhaps unlucky as the A/c in 1 room had to be serviced. The ipad they provide also needed attention, fridge milk was off on 2 days
