This hotel only existst to claw as much money asit can from the punters who frequent the casino & slots. Every thing else is secondary. The food in the restaurant is quite good, if you can find something that is on the menu, as a large part of the menu is permanently off.
Prices much higher than UK prices. I ordered coffe & chicken mayonnasie sandwich at 21:30. The coffee arrived after half an hour & then I had to wait another 15 mins for milk, The sandwiches arrived after 1 1/4 hrs. Another ten minute wait for a knife & fork( the locals use their fingers)
No sooner had I finished eating than they rushed me to pay, as they wanted to cash up. This made me smile as usually there is another ten to twenty minute wait for the bill.
Most people pay by card but when they bring the bill, they don't bring the card machine, so that is normally another wait to bring it.
Be warned, if there are more diners than waiters, you will have a long wait for your food.
When I asked if their wifi is working they said they do not have wifi in the public area. Obviously the casino is so poor they cant afford £100 amonth for the connection.
THey have a lovely swimming pool which is off limits to everyone except people staying in the hotel. No body has used the pool for about 10 years,because people don't drive 500 kms just for a swim. and locals who sepnd money on the overpiced food & drink are banned from the pool.
When the hotel was first opened the pool was the center of a big social scene with locals going there to eat drink swim & listen to live music, but the management has got lazier & stupider with each change of ownership ( 3 - 4 changes at least)
