The room was quite pleasant and decorated in a traditional way. The bathroom was smart and modern.
When we checked in we were told that the hot tub would take half an hour to heat up. When we subsequently went to use it it was still cold. We decided to eat first and then try again. When we returned to the spa area we were reminded about taking a shower. We were a bit taken aback as there was a notice in our room saying we should shower with soap for four minutes before using the facilities which we did. We travel frequently and do not feel that we should need to be reminded. I believe we were the only people staying that night and we felt that we were being monitored the whole time rather than just being left alone. When we did use the hot tub (some three hours later) it was not that hot but adequate. We had thought of using the hot tub the next morning but it did not open until 10 and check out was at 11. Bearing in mind that the hot tub would take at least three hours to be remotely warm enough we were not impressed. We have stayed at many hotels with hot tubs and they are normally available for use from 8 in the morning.
We were asked if we wanted breakfast but as this would have been $15 per person we declined. We left at 9.15 in the morning and the part of the hotel where the reception was was locked so we could not use the internet. We were given a code for the wi fi but this did not work. The television had such poor reception we could only get one channel.
We felt that this hotel was a bit fusty and we did not like the atmosphere. It was not relaxing to feel we were being spied on. We even had to move the car as it appeared to be parked in the wrong place. Both car parks were completely empty!
We paid $119 for the room which we thought was poor value in view of the above. We now wish we had looked around at more hotels but it was only for the one night before flying home.
