Fabulous 8.8 From 701 reviews

Fair 4.0
Getting basics wrong
The pool was absolutely rammed with swimming club and too many people so we couldn't use it. Breakfast was a fiasco, taking ages to serve and no basics like whote toast or croissants and cold scramblef eggs, yet full price charged. The rooms are nice and clean but this wasn't a pleasurable experience.

Very Pleasantly Surprised
Very pleasantly surprised with everything. Room size and comfort of the bed was excellent. Food in the restaurant was also good and attentive staff.

Good 6.0
Ok hotel with a good location.
It was quite a good stay. I complained about the fridge not working so somebody came and took a look. They switched it on and said it was working. 5 hours later it still wasn't working so we had to put my cancer medication into the ice bucket filled with ice to keep it cool over night!!! Told reception on departure and was told it was not a fridge it was a cool box. Was not happy with their response. It was warmer in the fridge (coolbox) than in the room?
