Took 1.5h to get two bath towels brought to the room. The room was not made up by housekeeping. Technologically dated with minimal TV channels and even no option to cast/screenshare.

Mum and I stayed on 30May22 - 1st June'22 very nice hotel, nice room,paid extra for harbour view room. The room is small. The only thing I was dissapointed that need improvement is our room should be ready at 3pm. We had to wait another 45 minutes later Mum is in wheelchair bound, not comfortable waiting extra time. Other than that we had a good stay.
