    Helpful receptionist, well located for the village

    Room was a bit smelly, shower curtain mouldy. Not enough towels and no shower mat in bathroom. Hotel breakfast was disappointing. Try Skoosh for breakfast, cafe 2 mins out of hotel

    Nice location.

    Room wasn't very clean - no one vacuumed the carpet, towels had dirty stains on them. Walls were paper thin, co we clearly heard people in the next room talking, other guests' TV, running water, closing doors.

    Very good breakfast. Decent restaurant menu.

    - Our room wasn't ready when we checked in. We had to wait around 30mins (after having been told that our booking has been cancelled - just a few minutes after confirming my check-in time) . We were then given another one. - The corridors and our second room lacked decoration, but that's the least of my concerns. - Paint was peeling off, there were mould stains and smells in the bathroom. - Only one toilet paper roll was provided throughout the stay. - The towels we left in the tub (as instructed) were not removed. We did find 'new' ones on our beds which also had what seemed like mould stains and no smell of clothes detergent. - The room wasn't cleaned daily. - Not all the ceiling lights worked. - We kept being locked outside our own room as the card readers (of many guests) were faulty. - The hotel has no lifts so we had to carry our luggages up the stairs and go down to the reception every time we were locked out to reset our cards. - Double bed consisted of 2 singles put next to each other, with one large quilt and the bottom mattress linens. - Deceiving advertisment of the place as the spa is not included in the price (There's an additional fee of £5 per stay to use other facilities). - Hotel looked short staffed although most were nice. - Lobby, restaurant and room furniture was old and peeling off/flaking. - On check-out we were first asked to wait for 30mins (when we should have been packing for an early morning flight), then we were given the wrong receipt (stating that we had bought liqueur etc.), then we were charged for 2 nights instead of 3 (I thought it was a discount as an apology for the inconvenience) but they kept calling us at out room while we were trying to sleep!!!

    Comfy bed

    Receptionist gave me keys to a room which was already occupied, which was very embarrassing then checking out they had lost my check in sheet which I had signed so took over 10 min to check out.
