Really enjoyed staying at this hotel

Good hotel in great location. The air conditioning was not working in the initial rooms we were given which made them uncomfortable, but they happily moved us to new rooms where it was working. Good breakfasts and nice pool.

Excellent hotel experience
Your staff were uniformly polite, smiling and attentive whether at reception or in food service. I’ve never stayed in a hotel where so many staff members looked so happy and enthusiastic about their work. This bonhomie added an extra enjoyment to an already outstanding experience.
Lorraine, au4 night family trip
Fair 4,0
Not up to scratch - poor service
Reception experience the worst ever - every aspevt was poor. No robes in room. Kept referring to us using wrong name. Unable to accomodate an early check in (prebooked). Some leisure facilities out of us - not informed. Receptionist on arrival was rude. Service charge to use restaurant?
