I arrived at the Hotel Ponderosa on the 27th of April 2015. Me,my partner and my grand-child was looking forward to a relaxing holiday break however,having arrived,we experienced the complete opposite. When we checked in,we were given a basic room on the 9th floor. As we entered the room,one of the very few cleaners was still working in our room... More

We stayed at Hotel Ponderosa in April 2015 for a week and before... More

Staff were pleasant but overworked. Downside food was the same most nights,sometimes luke warm. We did complain! Avoid rooms on lower floor as mentioned very noisy!!! Room was... More
