We visited this hotel in September 2014 after reading rave reviews on Trip Advisor. Everything looked perfect and there did not seem to be anything adverse apart from the location. On arriving at the hotel by car we parked directly in front of reception. No porters were anywhere to be seen. We unloaded the car in view of the receptionist who never moved an inch. I then went into the reception area and wheeled out the Bellboy type luggage trolley, again no acknowledgement from reception. We loaded all our cases up and wheeled them to reception and checked in. To my amazement, we then had to wheel all the luggage into the lift and then to the room. Fortunately, although pensioners, we managed. We were accommodated in the rear of the hotel with a scruffy outlook over some waste land with the main road another 100 yards behind. The balcony was tiny and had a small table and one chair, not ideal for a family of three! On a couple of occasions we sat around the pool but if we wanted a drink, we had to climb stairs to the bar and ask. They then brought them to our sunbeds. Why they don't have some staff servicing the pool area is also confusing for a 4 star hotel. Having had my little moan about basic stuff, we actually got to like the hotel. The cleanliness was excellent and the breakfast bar was good. We never ate at the hotel restaurant as every time we passed, it was almost deserted, which did not appeal. Overall, a good hotel but needs to pay more attention to the little things to achieve their rating
