      • Disliked: Room comfort

      Whrn we checked in we was told the pool facilities would be open till 9pm and then when we got there at 6pm they said it was only open till 7pm, so we was abit disappointed. And we couldnt get to use the pool again after this because of the notice from the government i onpy booked this hotel because of the pool and sauna :( The pillows in the bedroom are rock hard had to use a blanket from the car for the second night.
