Verified reviewfair

We may have gone on a bad day, but we had numerous issues. Firstly not even a kettle for a cup of coffee in the room. The room was not equipped for 3 people with towels and glasses but did get 3 bottles of water. No hot water to shower, which brings me to the fact that they were accommodating a large group who may have been responsible for this issue. The noise from the guests were unbearable late into the night and started early morning before sunrise. The rooms are situated in away that noise travelled directly from upstairs to our unit, not only foot steps but word for word conversations. Due to the group, breakfast was a no go for some time. When we finally were able to get to breakfast is was pleasant. In my opinion the staff try their best, but there is not enough staff to handle the group of people they are accommodating. Before returning I would make sure of occupancy and what room I was staying in for noise.
