Our room had 2 double beds and 1 chair. Guess what, someone had to sit on the bed. Rooms are a bit outdated. I notice every comment on here says the same. Loved the stains on the carpet. They must have a huge water bill as you have to run the shower quite a bit to get hot water, and...

Room way too hot. COLD water in shower too hot to use after two minutes. Chef 'too tired' to make buffet breakfast. Extra charges for everything including WiFi. This hotel is just a shadow of it's former self. I will not stay there again.

One star is for the friendly check in service at 6am. The other star is for the great pool. And if I could, half a star for the comfy beds. Not the same hotel we stayed in 4 years ago when it was The Holiday Inn Esplanade. The hotel in general is so out of date. I especially thought the...

Accomodation is a bit hit and miss, but usually it's well priced. Fantastic pool and reasonably nice food, but the staff, they make the place, especially the breakfast staff. Have stayed multiple times. Also has a good rewards system.
