After reading many reviews on here before leaving the UK I was a little apprehensive as to what the hotel was going to be like when we left, but I was more than happy with the hotel when we arrived. We stayed here for 3 weeks from June 10th until 1st July 2014. Upon arrival, Michael the Manager on Reception... More

First let me say something about myself. I don't expect the best, but I do like to feel comfortable in my surroundings. THE GOOD: The hotel has curb appeal. It looks clean and well kept from the street, the hotel sign stands out from the others when you are travelling up the street looking for the place. The lobby also... More

Room phone did not work, bedding not changed, room service twice a week, buffet breakfast (toast, cereal, juice, coffee) regularly runs out. On checking out I was told I was not on their system. After I left they took moneys off my... More

Words cannot express the utter disgust of this dilapidated motel that was more indicative of a frat dorm after a house party than a place to stay while enjoying a vacation getaway. First, the layout is like a maze & there's no elevator to help you get up to the second floor with luggage. This may be a blessing because... More

The staff on the lobby were friendly and inviting, although we did have to wait 25 minutes to check in (arriving at 3 checking was meant to... More

Checked Into this hotel on 17th June. As we opened the door into our room the smell of damp was overbearing. After umming and arring we decided to ask to change rooms. The hotel staff were miserable and not very apologetic for the smell in the room but gave us another room key eventually. We entered our new room and... More

2nd time staying at this hotel. Great location and spacious clean rooms but housekeeping and breakfast lets it down. Never any pool towels and every day you have to phone reception to get more bath towels sent up as the Maid would persistently leave 2 towels despite 4 guests staying in room. One day, no towels were left whatsoever, no... More
