      5/5 Excellent

      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

      No complaints. I will be back in January. The breakfast choice was very good and sets you up for the rest of the day.

      The best thing about the property is the staff, so friendly and helpful. The only negative is me and my mum hD interconnecting rooms and we had lots of issues with accessing our rooms, alarma kept going off and had to keep going sown to recwption to have keys reset

      Poor service

      Booked 2 rooms, 1 for me & my wife & 1 for my son & pre-paid for hotel through Hotels.com. However, on arrival, they wanted to charge me again! Managed to sort by showing email from Hotels.com. & payment on my Card. Hotel room is okay. Bed good & had a good nights sleep. Breakfast okay. However, before I’d checked out, went to get bag from after breakfast & key had already been deactivated. This is not right & should not happen until at least check out time, which is 11 am. Sorted this & went to check out & again they wanted to charge me. Had to go through whole proof thing again. Not very good!! Then, when my son went to check out an hour later, they wanted him to pay too!! Really not a good service at all.
