Great hotel, shame about the booking sustem
Very good hotel except they can’t answer the phone when called before you get there regarding bookings. Hung up 6 times. Just cut you off. Also when hotel.com tried to contact them. This resulted in me booking staff in another complex. Asked to talk to duty manager when I arrived but he was too busy. Well so am I. Your loss.
