Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Terrible
Very average stay! Bedding was horrible, room was very run down and a lot of things in the room didn’t work. There was electrical issues with power points not working and some sparking. The shower was the worst shower that I have ever had there was no water pressure at all and could not get a constant temperature. Only saving grace was no of these things affected our kids and they still had an amazing weekend away

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness
Disappointing, not worth the money
Positives: the guy at reception during check in, very professional and attentive; the room was big, and goood location. Unfortunately, the room was very old and outdated, the photos we saw before booking did not match with our room. Room was never serviced although was mean to be serviced daily (this was one of the reasons to book there). The room’s wifi was not working, the aircon was very noisy, when reported the first night, we were told would be fixed, never happened. During the check out we were never asked if we enjoyed the stay, if it was ok or if we had any issues. The lady was only concerned to know if we had anything from the mini bar. Overall, not good value for money, plenty of options for that price. Don’t think we would stay here again.

Horrible
Well to start with - to access the room was a bit of an issue as the carpet was coming up and you had to really give the door a push, single bed doona on a double bed, exhaust fan cover with dust, bathroom cupboard was broken - when opened the shower cap box it had someones old make up remover inside (disgusting) - carpet was coming off the walls and bubbled and a major trip hazard, the bedside lamp didn't work- the curtains falling off the rails - was nothing like the rooms on the website.
