We arrived early at the hotel to find our room (Room 65) was not ready for us yet. As we were in Livingstone to go to the outlet shopping village, we set off there and said we would collect our keys on our return. We returned later on to find our room had changed to Room 22.

Lovely hotel however drink is majorly overpriced and not worth it. I've been to a couple of functions there and you really notice the contraband drink which is brought in. You would do better as a hotel to charge a reasonable amount and you would profit from it!

Just returned from a wonderful night. From check in to check out everything was great. The food in the restaurant was fantastic at both dinner and breakfast and our room was spacious and extremely comfortable. One I would definitely recommend. X

It is with great disappointment that I write this review. My sister-in-law (Fiona) and I were due to enjoy a relaxing spa day including treatments tomorrow. My sister-in -law has enjoyed several spa days at different MacDonald hotels and has always been very impressed with the facilities and friendliness of the staff. Knowing that I expect very high standards Fiona... More
