Facility maintenance gone backwards since my previous stays, buffet food cold with limited options. Water is visibly brown coming from taps, drinking water not replaced during stay. Staff very friendly and doing their best.

Poor service, slow, unfriendly but good food. A brilliant viewing balcony but not enough outdoor eating seating to enjoy this one good thing. Rooms were clean and comfortable but lots of small defects. Just felt sloppy and unfriendly.

We found the food actually quite good and tasty, with a good variety of different dishes appealing to different tastes, freshly prepared. Breakfast was also good, with a live station for omelettes.
