Breakaway week 2015
1) Room 40 can be improved by using some painting and replacing old silicon around bath/shower. 2) Wi-Fi? Not free open Wi-Fi you get 100Mb per day !!! Please review your advert. 3) Room 40 the carpets are very dirty.....just take a white paper and rub it over the carpet or walk barefoot. You will see it. 4) Parking was bad. Why not allocate a parking bay for each room??? Sleeping hotel guest comes first!!!! 5) Pool area.....way too overcrowded. 6) Your staff are very friendly. 7) Hotel location is great.

Bad and Average
The first day was horrible, the tv and the air con did not work. There was no shower curtain and the door could not lock from the inside. After numerous complains I was moved to another room the next day. The room need an urgent upgrade. On the plus side the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast and buffet was very very good.
