Don't bother if you want 4 star
We booked a one night stay to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary.We chose this hotel as it had spa facilities. When we got there the indoor pool was out of action.The hotel looks very much like a block of dated flats and has no personality. We had paid extra for a room with a sea view but this was somewhat spoilt by the flat roofs with electric equipment in front of our window. There were no coffee making facilities in the room despite being listed and when we asked were brought, eventually, a kettle and 2 cups!! Fortunately I had brought tea bags and milk so we were able to make tea after buying some water. If you wanted to use the sauna or steam room you had to notify reception and wait for them to heat up. This was impossible in the sauna as the door would not close rendering it useless. We had to wait half an hour for pool towels which had to be collected at reception. You had to go to reception for a key for the gym and also to buy a locker key. We had to pay for wifi which we thought was included and surprise surprise it did not work in our room so total waste of money.The breakfast buffet was quite good although the hot food was not so hot! The service in the restaurant was very good. We would not stay at this hotel again it definitely mis-represented itself on the web sight and made out it was much better than it is.
