                      We did not enjoy our stay as we were not advised that there is a club accross the road that stayes open over the festive seasons until 6 in the morning. We had to look for other places to stay

                      The reason why I am saying that I was so disappointed about my booking. my room shown on this picture is not what I got for my mother's birthday and she was so unhappy. Firstly my room could not be found when I wanted to check in till I had to send an email with copied booking confirmation. My Mother was given a room with 6 Bunk Beds and I was not happy finding my mother in that room in the next morning.What is shown in this picture is not what I got and when making a booking this is the room I choose.

                      It was very much appreciated that there was perfect understanding that I needed a room for me and my 7 year old daughter. An excellent rate was given and it made things go nice and smoothly. The only thing that was disappointing, but wasn't too much of a train smash, was that there was no power point in the room (room 7).

                      i felt extremely uncomfortable and mislead as there were alot of undisclosed information that had not been provided for eg after checking in the following day getting family come over then to be told infront of guests that no visitors are allowed, I think that is very unprofessional and that should have been told on day of check-in
