Love the plunge pool, it's the main reason I always stay there but I probably won't be back as over all the place is a bit run down now. Tv channels were only half working and some had no sound. Duvet covers had multiple stains, sheets had black ink on them and most off putting was the long black hair I kept finding among the linen. Also noise from rooms next door were bad. I had also requested a room at ground level which I didn't get. If I had known one wasn't available I would have gone elsewhere as I have buggered knees.
