The reception area is nice. When we arrived we had to ring the after hours number several times and had to go looking for someone to check us in, even though we arrived while the reception desk was open. The warsrobe was repurposed as a kitchenette, leaving no room to actually hang clothing. No cover on the duvet - means less laundry for staff, but also means we were all up in a duvet that probably hadn't been washed since the last guest.

No air conditioning - it was very hot. Room shook every time (frequently) a door shut somewhere close. Thought it was a special price (last minute) but would’ve been very Cross if we’d paid any more for it.

The room was extremely small with no where to put you luggage without tripping over it. Lots of noise from upstairs until early hours of the morning. Bathroom was ok but again size was an issue. Decor is also dated throughout. One positive was the bed was comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay room was extremely small and we were on the ground floor and due to the thin walls and floors we could hear everyone upstairs walking around. The pool was lovely, cold but good once you got used to it. Spa was Luke warm which I understand is probably better for kids.
