We stayed for five nights in a two bedroom family room which was very spacious and had a small kitchenette including a microwave and fridge. The bathroom was large but the shower drain was blocked, causing the floor to become flooded. They came on three separate days to unblock it, but it wasn't ever fixed properly. The bathroom amenities were very nice. We only had one breakfast at the hotel and it was just the standard buffet fare, nothing special. We tried sitting outside one afternoon for cocktails but never once spotted any staff, when we went to the bar to order, there wasn't any staff there either. That said, the font desk and housekeeping staff were very efficient and pleasant. The best thing going for the hotel is its location opposite the Gateway shopping centre
