why bother?
Only 1 night, bar food was quite nice. Let down by the rest of the hotel. Room was quite grubby and noisy hallway with plenty doors banging made for a poor nights sleep. Air con unit fan ran all night to help keep you awake. Breakfast was the standard poor fry up affair.

Poor accounting procedures and terrible Internet p
My review remains to be seen. My credit card shows that they have billed us 3 times for the one nights charges. Two of the charges are duplicates and the third a separate amount entirely. We are waiting to see if they clear it up on their own or if we have o go through a dispute resolution process.

Good - but not for food...
Good place to stay overall. Great for kids to enjoy swimming pool and kids club. Average bar and restaurant food - one night kids sausages were not fresh(probably left over from breakfast) and sirloin steak that suppose to be med-well was cremated - not taken off from the bill. We didn't bother to go back there next day. Not many good food restaurants in the area or coffee shops. Room were small but cosy and well decorated. Staf in hotel pleasant and friendly except one receptionist who didn't apologies for fire alarm that came on in rooms at 2.30am scaring us and our little kids- (reason, someone was smoking cigaret in one of the rooms). Overall good, will still recommend to others!
