Great hotel - bad service ”

The hotel was great, although rooms slightly outdated, the facilities are the selling point for this hotel. The downside is that when issues arose although minor, the poor and slow service made them major issues which disrupted our plans for the day and delayed sleeping patterns for our little one. For instance issues with bathroom drainage required us to change rooms and to initiate this, the hotel was helpful, but to carry out the Change from one room to another took over an hour when it didn’t need to… Until we got fed up and asked for rooms keys where we moved ourselves into our new room, and followed this with constant reminders to add the cot bed and extra bed as we had in previous one. Several other encounters happened of this sort where we came to understand that nothing gets done until you get angry. It’s a shame. At the very end we were left with a very stale taste of the hotel as they refused to let us use the facilities such as the pool and showers post check out which is different from any other hotel I’ve stayed in wordwide .. they quickly changed their tone and allowed us to use the facilities after an uncomfortable conversation and threat of a bad review. This should not be the case for a 5 star hotel and upsetting as these factors are all in the control of management who let the hotel down.

Disturbing noises in adjoining rooms”

The only problem is the hotel's very poor sound insulation level, other than that everything is excellent
