location, parking, clean
pleasant stay, however, i was only offered a prokard upon departure, which would have earned me points had i done it on arrival. After the rooms were cleaned, the soaps, shampoo and shower gels were not replenished. Nor were the tea,coffee and milk replaced. I shall stay there again, however for a four star establishment, these minor problems should have been avoided. on a positive note, once I called housekeeping to complain, the problems were rectified within 5 minutes.

Location to gateway, spa, comfort
Concerns: No small bar fridge in room? Hotel Food prices are a bit expensive? No shuttle service to the beach as hotel is a good distance away from the beach? But other than that a great holiday! Great advantage is the walking distance to gateway!
