Rooms are pretty dated especially the bathrooms. Shower over the bath and the shower head is very very low.

8/10 Very Good

I have stayed here many times, Room 233 is the best with a spa right by the window. This room is a privilege room however all the rooms are very spacious. Vanessa at reception was extra helpful throughout my stay over the 3 days and so was housekeeping. I got an early check in as requested and everything I asked for before I checked in. I also got a late check out. Although I didn't and haven't dined there, I like the restaurant/bar/deck area and there is a buffet breakfast which I would imagine would be great and you could get value for money. I have been told the bathrooms are all being renovated with no spas or a bath by the window that's a shame as it is a nice touch however i did get a glimpse of one of the new bathrooms which are very stylish and unique and something you might see in a Vogue Living magazine...something to look forward to during your rest and stay especially if your a girl. I do feel they should have some rooms with a bath as all hotels should!
