    Ok but there are simple measures for improvement

    Our stay was comfortable but the fan in the bathroom was disgustingly dirty. It was very off putting and hard to believe that cleaners would by pass cleaning it. Some members of our family group, a couple of doors away, said theirs was the same. We spoke to the girl at reception and showed her a photo but I don't think she was particularly concerned. The teabags were tasteless and not much variety, no biscuits or snacks supplied with tea making service.

    Weekend at Wren

    View was amazing. Was facing the town but it was still spectacular. Although the exterior may appear dated, the interior was modern and clean in our room. The outside green space was quiet and relaxing.

    Very good accommodation

    We have stayed here a few times, this time mountain view room in tower, which have been updated,since the last time here. Room clean,comfortable and service and staff here is always excellent. Had the breakfast option included with room, which was the buffet style with a limit on numbers at any one time. As always here, meals very good with a good choice. Dinner here also excellent in the boardwalk bistro. Our only mistake was did not book enough days through, so booked extra with property direct so we did not have to change room, cost us way more for the same room for the extra night.

    Popular place for all tastes

    Current renovations affected our arrival at this huge complex. Lack of clear signage caused delays but once check in completed, all ok. Lovely view from our room. Pool, sauna, spa and gym facilities kept grandchildren very active. We forfeited dining areas for activities. Room service worked.
