  • Liked: Amenities
  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

Property was a little tired, the main areas were clean and appealing but the room was in need of updating and repair. Room was very hot and air con not working, told by hotel staff to turn it off, couldn't have window open as a balcony area and the brackets to stop the windows from opening fully were broken. After room cleaned came back to room to find the door had been left open (luckily nothing taken) and also a half full cup of milk left on the side. Reported to reception who said they would investigate and still no reply even though I have emailed them again.

Welcoming staff, friendly and helpful. No welcome pack or resort map. Was booked at the spa and not offered any robe or slippers despite being informed I would be. Lovely spa treatments Comfortable room, mattress very soft however. Lack of plug sockets near the bed for phone charging. WiFi very impressive. Shower great.

The property is in a good location and has a lot of potential if cleaned and dusted well. Being a wellness and spa, this property could really benefit from serving fresh food and serve exactly what is on the menu so it doesn’t confuse the customers. The Quality of the food let’s it all down otherwise our stay was very relaxing. I am a qualified masseuse myself and I will have to say that Megan is very good and Sophie has been very helpful. Also the manager has been very understanding and I hope she makes the necessary changes that will make a difference.
