We stayed here one night in a deluxe room costing $232. This was supposed to be a half-way rest for us on our trip. The facilities are generally good but room certainly not deluxe other than a lake view partially obscured by buildings and a large sign advertising thermal pools.
The king bed was very uncomfortable wobbling about with every movement and the room has no sound proofing at all. Our neighbours upstairs were incredibly noisy until 2am!! You can hear conversations and every movement of furniture, doors etc. And every time a truck went down the road it was like it was coming into the unit, no noise-proofing at all.
Others on tripadvisor have made similar complaints about noise and we note that the manager replies but NOTHING has changed. We'd have got more sleep sleeping on the side of the road in our car. We are not tourists so we will make sure we tell people not to stay here!
On checkout, reception didn't even bother to ask us how our stay was? We would've told them if they'd asked but instead will just write it on here.
We often review great things on here so believe us when we say this was not a pleasant experience at all.
