1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not 5 Star by any stretch
Booked for a week but had to leave after 2 days as hotel not able to honour the booking (full) in addition to which they charged more than the contracted Hotels.com price. Hotels.com impossible to contact. Hotel maintenance behind hand with main restaurant closed and only coffee shop open and they tried overcharging there also! 5 star hotels do not have showers over the bath with plastic curtains, no soap dish etc. All in all a disgrace.
