Room: very spacious with two queen beds and a fantastic view (I booked Lake Superior)
Bathroom: quite large as split into two, bath and toilet in one part, shower and sink in another. Lots of hot water/ fluffy towels.
Quality of sleep: slept extremely well, bed was very comfortable. They have a sheet and a quilt so you can kick the quilt off if too hot. Some noise from the corridor but not enough to ruin sleep.
Pool: if no one else is in it, great, it is about 12-15 metres so you can (just) do lengths. Opening hours were a bit strange though, 11am-9pm, I am sure I am not the only one who likes a pre-breakfast swim.
Breakfast: service a bit random, they seemed to hide in the kitchen. I thought one guest was going to take the door off its hinges in trying to attract their attention. Scrambled egg was too runny but a good spread of fruit, bread, cakes and eggs.
Location : short walk into the main centre and on dry days not a problem. However the "path" is just a dusty track next to road and is extremely uneven (little steps, big steps, big slopes, little slopes, you have to watch every step). However on wet days it is a disaster. I was dropped off from a trip on the other side of the road and despite standing back I was completely drenched in the puddle spray of 5 vehicles (they were going too fast), Because the road was so busy, crossing the road that day was very difficult, I was literally soaked to the skin from my feet to above my knees from the spray and from the head down due to the rain. If I came back, I would search for a hotel more central to avoid the road.
There are two restaurants, I only ate in the more casual one. You could not order food from the other restaurant, you could not eat in the comfy chairs but had to eat at one if the tables. The food was good, service was good.
I was charged for items from the mini bar that I did not have, easily sorted at reception but......bit weird as it was a manual system.
The reception team are excellent.
