I went to this hotel on a school trip with friends and teachers. As we arrived on the coach we all thought it looked ok but we were terribly wrong. As we went through the main entrance the staff were kind and greeted us and handed us our keys which, by the way, were heavy lumps of metal with a key attached. Once we had all settled in we had a look around each others rooms, luckily our room was fine but others were not so fortunate. One room had a brown stain on the bed and in another the bed was damp. The lighting in the rooms left a lot to be desired, with only 2 lights,excluding the bathroom light, the room was constantly dark. The mattresses were hard and difficult to sleep in and the blanket was itchy which made it even harder. The bathroom was ok but the one thing I didn't like was the shower was extremely under powered and it took almost twice the amount of time it would normally to wash.
The waiter we had was extremely rude. As we were walking back to our rooms the waiter was coming the opposite way he then proceeded to push my friend out of the way and sarcastically go "sorry"
The food wasn't great but it was adequate. I can't comment on the choice of food as our teacher decided to pick for us.
Overall the hotel was terrible and I wouldn't recommend staying there.
