Was full so we couldn't upgrade, mattress sunk into the middle, no air-con is a BIG minus point. Jacuzzi wasn't working and the cold water only came out as a drip from our basin tap.

The whole experience and the most polite staff I have ever seen in a hotel

The only negative thing I have to say is the menu in the restaurant was very limited and the amount of time we waited for our meals to be prepared was too long and not enough choice

Not very well sign posted, rooms very warm as there was no air conditioning, constantly running out of food at breakfast as this was a self serve, woken up in the morning by scrambler bikes in the car park, jacuzzi was not working and drinks were expensive. This was no 4 star hotel.

We couldn't get a table in the restaurant until 9pm so chose to eat in the bar. At 7pm they were out of steak and salmon, our first two choices. No one knew what the dessert of the day was and they were too busy to find out. The jacuzzi wasn't working in the spa, so disappointing.
