A Terrible return stay
It was a terrible experience for this return trip.unable to be alloted the room which we have always stayed at but given one which the staff claimed to have a better view but otherwise.The room was also played with a super loud hammering sound every two hours...we were awoken from our sleep and no choice but to switch rooms at 3am in the morning.messed up our holiday and returned home dead tired.wifey gotta taken another day of leave.took us a few days to recover from it.after writing in, we were told it was due to a domestic water pump valve which was was a club room mind will take us some time to consider coming back to this hotel.the staff just do not have the initiative..

Overall its an ok hotel, Just a bit old
The hotel overall was very good. The only problems that I had were quite small, and I don't think that they are deal breakers. The Shower is really high up off of the ground, so it feels like you could fall(not slip) before you touch the ground. The room has dirt in a lot of weird places like in the lights, the room itself is clean but the dirt in the lights just shows the age of the hotel. The sockets here aren't international so you're going to need an adaptor( Also shows the age of the hotel). The light switches are also a bit annoying because they are buttons on the wall. Its hard to press them when its dark, you either can't find the button or you're turning on the wrong light most of the time. The hotel is very safe though, right in the middle of everything and the staff is very nice.
