Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
Awful staff apart from manager who dealt well with our complaint. No one on reception desk and returned after 10-15 mins with no apology. Had booked executive room snd gave us a standard room. Wanted to see where confirmation showed executive room which I had. Then no availability in restaurant in the hotel for dinner even though half board. Ate in another of their hotels. Had phoned four times previous day to book for dinner but unable to speak to anyone. Very unsatisfactory.
