          Why on earth would you make people believe this is a four star hotel ??? It's no different than faulty towers,only faulty towers had a bigger bar ..... Ruined our weekend with a dirty,out dated room with an old apple and fingered ... dried fruit and handled biscuits in JARS,shame really could make a lovely hotel and why do the staff NOT KNOW HOW TO SERVE AT A TABLE ... FIRST TIME IN THIRTY YEARS I HAVE NOT TIPPED THE WAITRESS .... UPSET AND FUMING .
