The rooms were large, warm and comfortable. However they were a little tired and worn in places. The Spa, Sauna and Pools were also not hot - which was disappointing given it is promoted as a spa resort. But we had a nice stay.

Everything seemed great until I got into bed, it was so itchy and horrible. Felt like there were hundreds of things biting me. I got out and slept on the couch for a while but woke up freezing so had to go back to that horrible bed, I would have had a better sleep sleeping in my car, pretty sure there are bed bugs in that bed.

Room was modern and spacious. We also enjoyed the pool and the onsite restaurant was excellent. The only negative was that the refrigerator in the room was barely cold.
