  • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I just liked the lake in the vicinity of this hotel. I did not like the staff services at all. This hotel is very run down and needs a make over. It was nowhere close to being a 5 star hotel. Very disappointing stay.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, room comfort

Good property but feels a little run down...Beautiful location but the service and the amenities don't do justice to it...Food was ok...Check in and check out was long as there was only a single cab to take the folks / baggage to and from the rooms...

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not again!

The property was rundown with very poor upkeep. Average on cleanliness. Very frequent power tripping. Below average on maintenance. But management is disorganized. Calls themselves 5star and doesn't even have a bar! The gym equipments are not maintained and rusted. Things I liked were. Staff is very courteous. Restaurant serves really nice food.
