      Ok.

      My experience with this hotel was horrible. Only best part of this hotel was location. You can commute to all major attractions within 15 mins drive. We had 3 nights booking here. 1st of all, they gave me a room without air conditioning. 2nd, they never refill shampoo, conditioner or body wash. Also, this is my first hotel I have ever seen that they don’t provide body lotion. I complained to receptionist about house keeping. They seemed not to care at all. The bed was uncomfortable. The washroom was very tiny. And the toilet flush majority of the time didn’t work properly at all. BathTub was small as well. Also, we could hear everything from the room right beside us. During our stay we heard one guy was snoring. Pros: Location was good. Cons: above all issues.

      Ok but not great.

      It was clear that the room had not had an update in quite a while, other than the decorating. There was a trouser press with a broken ironing board (it wouldn't stay up), an ironing board in the wardrobe that would only go to half height, no outlets in the room to speak of, a hair dryer from the 80s on the wall in the bathroom that didn't work, a towel warming rack on the wall in the bathroom that didn't work, and the cabinet labeled 'Mini Bar' was entirely empty. My husband ended up ironing his shirt while sitting on the bed with the ironing board between the bed and the wall (a space about a foot and a half wide) because that was the only plug we could find. While not devastating, it was certainly irritating for a hotel we were paying £120/nt for. And before you ask, we didn't have time to call the desk and ask for another board, we had a show to get to. Over all, the hotel was alright but nothing special and I would have expected to pay about half what we did. The rooms need a serious update to charge more.

      Stayed at this property for two days. I was unaware that the property had two buildings. One building had the pretty pictures where the reception and pool are, the other building was old, had the bedrooms which were old, not too clean. Pictures are very misleading. Not that close to transportation.
