Two nights given as a gift, so returned 5 years since the last time. Location is what this place has going for it, nothing else. It could be so good! Who is managing this place! As a general list of what is wrong, room carpet stained, uncomfortable, lumpy beds, lamps in bedroom don't work, tiles in bathroom cracked, grout dirty, toilet plastic, spa filthy, all quality is cheap quality, balcony chairs broken, lounges have been covered in water proof crypton fabric (for those who don't know what that is it is water proof fabric they use in nursing homes incase someone wees on them...lovely...not,), room was serviced at 4pm, genereally decorating basic, no curtains at window only a lining,, fluro lights in loungeroom which are bright and light, (a table lamp might be good....or but that would meat a side table too. Finally, freedom furniture is not commercial furnitre and might hold up in a domestic situation but not in a commercial situation. Spend some money on the decor, cleaning staff, and select quality. When i go away I like to enjoy where I'm staying and leave wanting to come back. I said I would never return last time and I will say it again!
