4/10 Fair

1) Wrong information by staff..Receptionist had told me I have to pay separately for use of Health Club when the same is complimentary for in house guests. 2)Defective shower room and water leakages on floor. No hot water from shower 3) Spa had no towels--I was told they had all gone for laundry. 4)Though food was good , waiter service in dining room was very poor.
