I have watched this hotel change over the years, first expanding and turning into a grande hotel for the area and now changing hands every few years. Unfortunately it has not been good for the place. I belong to the Club Mead which gets you nice perks if you come a couple of times a year, but that used to mean a nice turned down bed and some fantastic goodie in the pillow and a free drink for all members of your party and those things are gone. So are a lot of the excellent employees they used to have, no cocktail waitress in the bar, desk service is far less than helpful and too impersonal now and one restaurant is now closed. The former game room is gone, no bucket was anywhere for the sauna and the pool which used to be so warm now is not. It is nearly to the point that the value is slipping away which is too bad. I understand in bad times you try to cut corners and perhaps I have been coming there for too many years so I am disappointed. that being said, the rooms are nice, the walls are thick so it is quiet even with a soccer tourney staying there, it is nice and close to everything and the bar and restaurant are great to have on site. It is just too bad that extremely friendly atmosphere seems to have gone away, this place could and has been so much more.
