I stayed here with my son mid-week for just one night. The size of the room was good, but I noticed that it really wasn't that clean. Even the staff at reception had spots on their jackets, where you could tell they hadn't been cleaned recently. This hotel is looking a little worn. Our room had several exposed nail holes in the walls. The room service was not very good. The food quality just wasn't there.
The heated pool was in need of a good clean as well.
On the plus side this hotel is in a good location and the room service staff were polite and prompt. I just think this place needs a bit of a touch up. It is worthy of 4 stars, but no higher. If you want a 5 star experience I would go somewhere else, if you don't expect much and just want a nice location then this is your place.
