I had really mixed feelings for this hotel. I knew that the property was old and that the new operator had refurbished it. So I expected things to be pretty up-to-date. Turned out the room was OK. Comfy beds. The bathroom could have been better considering they had redone everything. It was quite plain. I wasn't expecting it to be gold-plated, but at least they could have made it simple and stylish. It just seemed like the bathroom had no element in it. Our room, funny enough, had two sofas which were already laid with sheets, so this kind of room would be perfect for a family with a couple with two kids.
Didn't get to use the courtyard though as it was too cold. We had some expectation of the gym/sauna facilities. After all, it was a RESORT, right? However, this area of the hotel was the disappointing part. The new operator left the entire gym/ sauna/ pool area in its Jurassic state. Honestly, the changing room where the sauna was located especially looked like a 90s government stadium grade facility. That particular area of the hotel is very dated. We went back to our room in no time.
Breakfast was great though. Great variety and good quality. Oh, and in general, the hotel staff was quite friendly. Parking was convenient too - just outside the main door. I might try out another hotel though for my next visit.
