Upon entering the hotel, the staff at reception absolutely delightful. I was dreading staying here after the reviews I'd read. Once I received my key on entering the small corridor to my room, it smelt damp. My heart sank but was pleasantly surprised at the room for the price we

I'm going to sound very silly but are the pool sauna bowling etc free or is there an extra charge? I'm going here in a weeks time so need to know asap. Do the rooms have hairdryer?? And towels? Are there any rules, like time to be in by etc??? Sounds silly but I know some hotels are strict. Thanks x
