2/10 Poor

Pethers was not a five star property more like a two star, no communication between staff, bathroom very dirty. Stands out they are trying to save money, breakfast was very poor, you get more breakfast at mcdonalds. Needs updating. Their are also no views as advertised. New owners need to look at the standards they could create a perfect oasis, instead of running it on a shoe string.
