Stayed here recently for two nights. Hotel is functional with a nice lobby, bar restaurant and leisure centre. Excellent little play area for kids. The room was a little disappointing to say the least, very small for a family room. It was bearable for two nights but certainly wouldn't of stayed any longer in it.
