      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
      Adequate

      The room was a little dated with no USB connection on any plugs. The room was cold when we arrived late and the radiator was blocked by the sofa bed and the bedding was light so it took some time to feel warm after getting into bed. The spare bed for the third adult in our room didn't have a mattress protector on it, just a sheet. The coffee sachets in the room were really poor quality following exceptionally bad coffee served in the breakfast room the following morning. The coffee was replaced when we asked but again this was not nice coffee at all. The chef made me an omelette which was lovely. The health centre was OK but really dated and the pool area badly in need of a refurb. The staff were really helpful and nice here and in the hotel though. Toiletries in the room were limited and quite lacking - I had to ask for some shampoo and conditioner as the bottle on the wall in the shower was almost empty and clearly not checked by housekeeping. I did expect more for my money - decent coffee, USB sockets, a warm room and toiletries.
