Our travelling party stayed in 4 rooms. All were clean and spacious. Staff was friendly. Water pressure in shower was good. Beds fairly comfy. There was parking available and there was a restaurant option although we didn't need it. Recommended!

While some of the staff is kind, Colin constantly has a look of disdain on his face and acts like you staying there is an inconvenience to him personally. The room was not clean, except for the linens when I checked in. They did not change the linens once however over the course of my week long stay, despite my putting a sign on my door to have staff make up my room. The menus in the room were old apparently and had items on it that the kitchen was unable to make. As well the kitchen was sometimes just randomly closed with no sign indicating why. There is no noise buffering in the room so I could hear everything: from the wedding reception on the weekend to the guy in the room next to me watching porn to kids screaming in the pool. The water pressure was exceptionally bad and on several occasions there was no hot water at all when I showered. It was just bad overall.
