4/5 Good

Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Good location, however stairs to the decking could have been repaired they weren’t so safe and four had no slip resistant like the others bit dangerous. The overall property was good however their service of house keeping was very lacking it looked like nothing cleaned just the beds made and not that well either. Crumbs on the floor not removed our entire stay from day one where friend accidentally spilt in first day of our stay
