I read quite a few reviews before going to this hotel and there was a mixture of opinions so I decided to give it a try. All I can say is that all the good reviews must have been written by the hotel management because they made no sense whatsoever. I visited with my husband and 12 year old daughter over Thanksgiving. On walking into the room there was a horrible damp smell and although the room didn't look too bad at first when I opened the door of the 'balcony' I was horrified to see that it looked straight onto a brick wall! There was also no furniture on the balcony and there was a rotten looking hot tub there which looked filthy and you wouldn't dream of getting into. The wardrobe was tiny, the drawers difficult to open and just way too old for a hotel room. My daughter wasn't feeling very well so she wanted to lie down. I decided to lie down with her and when I put my head on the pillow I could smell stale sweat as if they hadn't been cleaned! I went straight to the Manager and told him about this and got a real blank look from him. I basically said 'this is meant to be a four star hotel and I couldn't believe that the sheets weren't clean. I had to suggest to him that someone come and clean the sheets while we were out. When I went to bed that night the duvet smelt of cat urine - I later discovered that this was a pet friendly hotel - aghhh! need I say more. When I finally left the hotel I was dying for the receptionist to ask how my stay was but surprise surprise I wasn't even asked, she took my key and hardly said goodbye. I think that in it's day this hotel could have been special in around 1930 but for todays discerning travelers it should be avoided at all costs.
