4/10 Fair

overpriced for quality of hotel
Hotel location and view are fantastic. Nice pool. Extremely disappointed with standard of cleanliness. Bedding was old and stained, definitely not premium. Towels were worn out. Bathroom not properly cleaned. Overall, property could do with a big spring clean and refresh. Not worth asking price compared to other hotels.
