We had received varying reports of this hotel - so were not sure what to expect. Actually, we were pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is tired and in need of a refurb, but we found it clean and tidy. Everything in our room worked & the bed was comfy. The only 'problem' was the shower. This was over the bath with a glass screen to keep the water within the confines of the bath. However, this screen was far to short and as you couldnt adjust the shower head, water went everywhere. Luckily there were four towels each, so a couple of these were utilized to soak/wipe this all up.
We had an excellent dinner and breakfast in the restaurant - and can certainly recommend the pool bar.
Perhaps the only 'problem' was on checking out - there was a problem with the 'system connection' and I would think that this was not an isolated one. They did not appear to have a backup manual proceedure in place, so we had to wait until things righted themselves, thus causing some concern in making our flight connection...everything worked out in the end, but would recommend you checkout...EARLY!!
