The hotel is terrible!!!!!!!!! My daughter got a room without a toilet. She needed to wait until the morning to go to our toilet. Carpets in rooms were spotty and looked like someone was killed. Lots of mess, lots of dump, were not towels in the rooms. We are not going to stay here any-more and we do not recommend.

We have stayed here 3 times in the last 3 months and we intend to keep going back. The staff do everything in their power to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. It is child friendly and excellent value for money
