Used hotel for overnight stay to attend a function

Posted 09-Feb-2017
Pros: Close to the function we were attending.
Cons: All the physical attributes of the hotel. Staff were fine, felt sorry for them.
Hotel is tired, staff fine but overall opinion of the hotel is tired, out of date and very expensive. Very poor value for money! We paid over $200 for the night, furniture in room in poor state, drapes in poor state, bathroom had been updated and was OK. No breakfast included, you get breakfast included in 3rd world countries. NOT GOOD ENOUGH> Will not be back and would strongly suggest to others, that this hotel is overpriced and undervalue.

Nice enough to stay in, but be prepared to use dated facilities and retro design of everything.

Chose this hotel primarily because it had a pool. However pool was closed because they couldn't get a cleaner to clean it. Very disappointed, especially in middle of summer. On a good note, restaurant food was fantastic.

Close to all activities

Liked the place , the only I didnt like the shallow swimming pool for kids was very dirty nobody had bothered to clean it was full of bugs. I sugges a mesh cover or at least a mesh bug catcher so the guest can use and clean themselves if necessary

Pros: Staff
Cons: Lack of parking and needs to improve cleanliness
Room was dirty, bathroom dirty and old. Hair on the bed (which wasn't mine) and dirt on the cover. Marks in the shower, it was disgusting. We had 2 rooms and my friend had an updated room with a walk in shower, her room was much nicer and actually clean.
