2/10 Poor

Horrible horrible front desk
It’s hard to think where to start when reviewing that hotel. It started with the receptionist not finding one out of our 3 rooms (a manger found it in a min later on) and telling us that she does not care if we spend the night in the lobby. Continued with just horrible service all through. We wanted to amend something in our bookings but the sales department was off for a week! So no one to speak with. The Spa was closed because they didnt have staff and an overall feeling that no one really wants to work there. I will never stay again.
