Just the mere thought that all the mess that I may or may not have made, would all be clear when I...

Always a great place to stay, facilities and service excellent, but the new no-smoking rules and imposed fines smacks of discrimination to smokers. Certainly caused a blemish on an otherwise amazing holiday.
