I have been here several times now and it's happened repeatedly. Also the management are not at all friendly!! One manager approached me at the pool informing me my drink was... More

The sportsmans is a little rough round the edges. The food is adequate and appropriately priced, it'll fill you up without feeling disappointed. The bar on the evening is good fun and worth sticking around if you enjoy a drink or 2.

In my visit this time, I couldn't find my way around the hotel: it's just grown too big from its modest backwater senior military after work meeting point. Nice place to... More

I complained for two days on the conditions of the ladies' restrooms - which were terrible. The staff did their best I have to say but I am very glad we decided not to book this... More
