While the room was clean, it looked like something out of the 70s, the TV did not have a remote control and the channels did not work anyway, the bed had hard pillows and a very sagging mattress, the wireless internet was not working - restaurant service was appalling. My wife's fish was served uncooked. When she asked for it to be prepared better it would appear that they popped it in the oven for a couple of minutes and then gave it back to us on the same plate with hot salad! At the same time I also indicated that the rusty salt shaker was not dispensing salt. While they were reheating the fish I heard them banging the salt shaker in the kitchen until it started dispensing something, salt or rust I am unsure of. The menu was terrible anyway. We asked for water at dinner and it had black spots in it. Breakfast was worse then what you might expect at a youth hostel with no preparation whatsoever. - Facilities like spa and sauna were not operational, outdoor furniture was generally unclean and there was rubbish left around including cigarette butts and alcohol bottles. - While they claim to be under new management I can only guess from other reviews that the new management is at least as bad as the old. AVOID THIS PLACE!!!! We thought we had a weekend getaway with their half price deal. It was well overpriced at this rate.
