4/10 Fair

We paid for a double twin /king room and was given a small queen room and when I asked if we could be moved to the room that we paid for I was greeted with rudeness and told the hotel is full. I then asked how much this room costs and was told it is what we paid for.

Clean, well appointed rooms with a balcony. Lovely, helpful staff and the food in the restaurant was quite delicious. Comfy bed, the pool looked lovely (didn't use it) and our only complaint was that some of our neighbours were a wee bit noisy. But kids are kids!!

8/10 Very good

Very nice property, reasonably priced and has a fantastic view. All the basic amenities of a good hotel are there and so it's ideal for trips over the weekend. The staff were very kind, although the hotel does look somewhat dated in its décor, very 1980s but not necessarily a bad thing.
