Written by our customers, so you know what to expect at each and every venue.
Not at all relaxing! Not what I would call a spa. Everything dated and smelly. Bathrooms dated but nice power shower. Rooms clean.Broken glasses left outside rooms the whole stay, glasses with cigarette ends in corridors. Nothing working( due to covid) no showers toilets hairdryers, no water available. Nothing open. Dinner and breakfast was terrible!dinner I don’t even know how they could serve it....Chips were still frozen. Breakfast you have to decide what you want as you arrive....was discusting even the tea was served warm.we cut visit short and left before afternoon tea!! Services throughout wasn’t great. Very loud in bar on a Sunday evening and partying outside bedroom windows early hours of the morning. Not relaxing at all. Up and down as keys wouldn’t work, no direction no signage no explanation. Had to work out for ourselves how to get robes slippers/ down to pool/ up to spa. Confusion on check in, and had to basically plan our whole itinerary while standing there. Was a complete shambles really. Not relaxing, not nice and wouldn’t return. Treatments had were done nice but didn’t make up for the rest of the trip. Such a shame!
We wouldn’t be going here again unfortunately, there were alot of kids in the pool, jacuzzi wasn’t working, not enough loungers either, wasn’t what we would call a relaxing spa
