Stayed here after ringing lots of hotels making sure we got one where the pool was warm .. was told by reservations that the pool was fine & warm .. it was freezing no-one could use it, ruined my daughters stay I made sure she used the outdoor "jacuzzi" not pool as advertised .... & didnt care as she couldnt use indoor pool.
Could have gone to much better hotel if I had known they were lying.
Grounds ... where?? All I could see was an ugly carpark as for outdoor "POOL" get your advertising correct folks.
In the yr 2011 go back in time where the dinner menu consisted of a "Vegtable Stirfry" this was the norm in the 1990's which sums this hotel up perfectly.
That night in the bar whilst enjoying the band that were playing (highlight of stay) approached barman to order a cocktail Cosmo - to be told "We dont do cocktails" ... did you ever in your life..... he was the Manager by all accounts as the next barman I asked said he had to go check with **** .... so this just summed up this place perfectly.
Also on arrival asked for upgrade to superior room & this was given .. til I saw the room OMG I had to check if they had made a mistake so politely asked was this a superior ... good lord wud hate to see the standard... after this hotel made up for it by going to the westport plaza - this folks is a 4 * hotel not this place ... wud not go back if I was offered it free.
Sorry but I am honest & critical this is a plain town standard hotel ...that could be really improved upon with a bit of flair & imagination ... doesnt take too much to check out other hotel menus, cocktail menus & "superior rooms" now does it??
