Very good 8.0
1st visit
As a 1st time visitor I should have been told that to get the lights to work you had to insert your keycard into a reader on the wall by the door. It was dark when I arrived so had to go back to reception as I could not see to phone. Also bathrobe and slippers were not in the room and not mentioned on the information sheet that you have to get same from reception, seems a bit daft to me. However, these were only minor grumbles, everything else was excellent and I would not hesitate to stay again. The pool and gym are fantastic
Beverley, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Small bumps but good experience
Few minor issues with the room but all sorted quickly and compensation given. Staff were brilliant throughout.
