    Staff at reception were okay and cleaners were friendly enough, but everyone else seemed rude, not interested and not very friendly. Rooms are dated, bathrooms in need of an extreme makeover! We booked a superior room and bathroom was tiny, dirty grout, cheap shower, holes in tiles and a shower curtain! Food was appalling! Overpriced, tasteless and raw in places! Dessert pasty was still raw, pasta was undercooked, for dinner you got 2 pieces of filled ravioli! Shocking! Breakfast was deep fried and tasted of old oil. No fresh fruit. Orange juice from a carton. Coffee and tea, horrible. Tried giving lunch a try and ended up sending it back and getting a refund. Ordered a burger that said avocado in the description only to be told it had avocado in the tiny spit of sauce that was on the very dry burger!! Ended up eating out every day. Only good thing about our stay was the size of the room, the decor downstairs was nice and cosy and the location.
