Stayed one night 28th October. Thankfully it wasn't any longer. We were looking forward to our stay as we had read of the big refit. We were given a room at the back of the hotel, the room was not ready not been cleaned and this was 4pm. It was a long way from the reception and also outside. So when we returned to reception we asked for a room in the main hotel. We were given a room on the second floor above the restaurant at least we will be warm, wrong! The key card would not work so another trip to reception. Main light in the room not working, so had to use bedside lights. Got stuck in the bathroom, door handle old and would not open the door, hubby had to let me out. Then we thought how cold the room was after we had returned from our swim. The windows did not close properly and one was letting in the wind which was particularly bad that night. It was too late to move rooms again so we left the heater on all night to keep warm.
That said the staff were very pleasant, the room was clean but small and the breakfast was OK.
They did give us a free drink and 10% off th bill for the hassle. I think we were unlucky, however it would have been a long and cold way back to the room along the corridor after a swim, not ideal. The pool closes at 6pm which we thought was a bit early. After moving rooms and key problems it was 5.30 by the time we got to the pool.
Would I stay again no afraid not. Have stayed in better. Glad we didn't pay the full room rate, got a deal on the intenet.
