The hotel is old and tired. The rooms are appalling and I stayed in a suite. The Spa is not up to any acceptable standard and is not a quiet and private place to relax. The standards in general are severely lacking. The front desk staff are friendly as is the bar staff. The restaurant staff are oblivious to the fact that there are guests. The General Manager was one of only two people I encountered that generally cared about me as a guest. This hotel is at best a two star.
