Unbelievably disappointed with our stay here, considering the amount they charge and the fact its a '5 star hotel'.
The staff are extremely rude, and did not make us feel welcome at all (in fact they made us feel like we did not belong there!).
The food was completely average at the buffet.
The room service we ordered was terrible, a greasy pizza that looked like it had dropped and thrown back together on the plate, delivered by a man who again was extremely rude and couldn't have looked more miserable if he tried.
The whole place looks incredibly dated and the rooms are not worth the money you pay.
I would never recommend this hotel to anybody.
I’ve been meaning to write a review for a while but havent had time. I got an amazing price for this hotel back in Oct 18. I rang and explained it was a present for my sons 21st birthday with his gf. The staff upgraded his room, put some birthday cakes on the bed for his arrival at no extra cost and pulled out all the stops! I’ve been meaning to say thank you as it’s very much deserved... they had an amazing time.
