3/5 Okay

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Great views but somewhat run down.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
bad service and not recommended
We booked this hotel online, got a confirmation email and text but when we arrived at night with 2 sleeping kids in the car, there was no one at reception and the place looked like a ghost town. We arrived well before the latest arrival time of 10pm and We knocked and called the hotel phone number many times but after 20 mins we found another hotel online and moved on. it was really dissapointing to be left wandering around a car park looking for someone to help us whilst the kids wake up in the car wondering what was happening and getting anxious. Luckily we were able to find somewhere else open that was lovely and friendly. Although we left voicemail messages for the hotel, we are still waiting for their return call to confirm we will not be charged and even to apologise for the situation, and it's been almost 48hours. I certainly would Not be recommending this hotel to anyone.
