They have room service - which was useful for us. Good value for money. Mobile signal poor - but can use WiFi calling - but I felt they should have a password for the WiFi - that they should change, say, weekly. They have two rooms with walk-in showers. There is a mid-size Co-op in the local village for papaers, etc.

Go elsewhere beds and rooms were in terrible condition and food was very poor at breakfast. The main bar and reception looked nice but not enough to make up for the terrible rooms.

The hotel needs an upgrade. It's meant to be a 4 star but should have been a 2 or 3 star. The first room we were allocated had not been cleaned, there was sweet wrapper in the drawer and the floor was dirty. The wall and ceiling needed to be painted. I thought the ceiling would fall down on me because it was so damaged. After complaining, we were taken to a second room, which was better but very dark. The ligtening was poor. The toilet kept running water, the bathroom door was damaged and bit of the ceiling paintwork was coming off. Luckily, we were only there for 2 days and spent most of the time outdoors as I would have struggled to stay there any longer. The bar area was nice, cozy and modern. The reception area was decent too. The hotel is in a very nice grounds surronded by greenery but just needs an upgrade as it has potential.

Great place but bad mangement! Need more staff. Never get answer to room telephone. Found bed bug at room 257. Changed to another room. No deep cleaning. Due fire alarm nightmare at night sleeping time had to leave early. Kids scared so much. Positive only great swimming pool and facilities. Nice area. I didn't make payment due to problems(it was after stay). They contacted and me complained. They remove the payment. But I can't thank them as my wife's one earring which was gold disappeared at chaos on leaving. Tried to be unbiased. Thanks
