This was our final hotel on our trip and sadly the most disappointing. When we arrived our deluxe room was ready but the other standard room wasn't. After an hour we went down to reception and were shown a room in the 7s which was absolutely filthy. I complained and was shown the room next door which although clean still felt dark and dingy. We were offered an upgrade to a deluxe next to ours which we took although we had to pay for it. However we paid a lot less than had we paid for it on booking in England. These rooms on the 2nd floor were clean and bright and we had no further issues with the rooms. We found most of the staff were lovely especially the pool guy and the man who made the Indian bread in the restaurant. The rooms were clean and beautifully made up at night. Our only other issue would be that the drinks could take a long while at dinner, 20 minutes one night. The pool was lovely and we had a boat trip on the river which was good. The hotel is a little tired but our favourite staff made the stay special.
