4/10 Fair

They stuck ridgedly to their 3 pm check in which meant there was an queue taking me 20 minutes to get to the desk. Then when I got to our room there was a double bed rather than the twin I had booked for my daughter and I. I went down to reception and was told I’d have to wait 1-2 hours until it was ready so really couldn’t settle in the incorrect room and start enjoying our holiday. Every morning we were woken up at 8 am by the sounds of drilling above us which was still going on when we went out. When I complained at reception I was informed that the windows were being replaced and it had been agreed for the workmen to start at 8am. I booked this hotel for a restful holiday which it proved to be not!

Nice, modern facility - but they should update their key management system as we kept having issues with it.
