The location of the hotel is in a great spot! But sadly thats where it stops.
The room we stayed in was on the 3rd floor, with no lift or staff assistance it can be quite a mission up and down the stairs all day. We even skipped swimming in the pool just on the thought of the stairs after a big day out and being so exhausted.
The rooms rubbish bin had never been cleaned with food stains all over it, so we used our own shopping plastic bags for rubbish.
The furniture seems to be the same since my last visit 7 years ago, the couch was turning black from the filth on it and the cushions just sank to the bottom, very uncomfortable.
We were annoyed at the fact they have ripped out the oven and put a microwave in its place, this stopped us using the kitchen to cook or at least limited us to what we could cook.
The bathroom was nice, maybe a supply of a second set of bath towels to change half way through the stay would be nice too.
They need to place ant traps in as well because ants were EVERYWHERE!
The pool is nice though, parking is a breeze.
