When we checked in we were advised there was no hot water and they were working on it. We could have used a local holiday park if WE paid for it. Next morning STILL no hot water. No discount. HOPELESS.

On arriving we were greeted with the knowledge of no hot water and it will not be restore till Monday. I asked why were were not informed about this earlier as the receptionist... More

Managed to grab the last double room when booking in at late notice for a local wedding. Very pleasant service when enquiries were needing to be answered. The room itself was basic and compact (it was a studio) but had everything that you needed. Clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed. The shower was a little weird to try... More

Disappointed with people smoking in their room next door which wafted into our room (through the walls, we didn't have windows open). Smoking in rooms shouldn't be allowed at any establishment, the chemicals and smell are not worth it! To begin with we were put in a smokers room then asked to be moved to non-smoking, which the lovely reception... More

Staff encounter was only at reception & check in who was courteous, very systematic, and efficient. We had the adjoining room to stay in and we were quite satisfied with it for a one night stay. Inspite of the bar next to it, we still had a good sleep. Walls were ok, you couldnt hear your neighbors in the following... More

First impressions were - well it doesn't look like the photo's. However, we had a very comfortable stay. The room was warm and inviting, quiet and cozy - even though there is a bar next door the sound proofing was great. The room was very clean, the bed so super comfortable I wanted to take it home!

The room size and furnishings were pleasant and adequate as was cleanliness. Nice bathroom with bath and shower. However pulling down the knob to make the shower work was very difficult to access and as I have arthritis impossible. The room(out the back) was very very quiet despite its busy location, very impressed. Plenty of places to eat and drink... More

I really can't praise this hotel highly enough. We arrived very late, but were contacted by the hotel en-route so that they could arrange access to our room for us. The hotel is arranged around a lovely swimming pool, and there are several restaurants to choose from. Our room was in a peaceful location upstairs. The hotel also had a... More
