The staff were polite and friendly. The room was a good size. The bathroom was old and tired, a bit gross, not unclean but taps and fitting iodized and water damage on the roof and door visible. The wifi signal was very poor.

The rooms were big but very outdated. The restaurant was disappointing. For the amount of money we paid, we felt ripped off. The quality of food doesn't match the pricing. Long wait times and food was overall horrible. Wouldn't recommend this place at all.

The location was very handy. Our stay was good. We really liked that the children could eat for free and breakfast was beautiful.

Staff were good and pleasant. Food was terrible. Room service was very prompt but it would have been better to take a little longer and ensure that the food was hot, cold salt and pepper squid is never a good thing. The complex is tatty and needs repair / upgrading. Room fan didn't work. I checked out early and couldn't find anyone at the front desk. I wont be going back.
