2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Check in was not as per the email sent by wotif , the property staff had to be called on the phone to come around and give us the keys, there was a fee charged for the pet by the property which would be nice if wotif had in a nice way informed us on booking , there was no COVID protocols followed - no log of the people checking in and no mask protocols followed , this is a serious health issue

3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Disliked: Staff & service
Not what I really expected when purchased
Could've been so much better with some very simple basics. Room was downgraded from Spa to standard with no refund or compensation. ONLY ONE toilet roll (partly used) in room for 2 people 3 nights - Also only two towels in room. Very dodgy glass coffee table (Not secured) which nearly fell on my partner while I was at work. (It did actually fall and also nearly fell a few times with very little persuasion) If you advertise an Espresso machine - I would expect at least a couple of pods to use....... Useless without Pods. Bed is in room the opposite way that power points were designed - so power only available on one side (the wrong side) of bed..... No Visitor car parking even though facilities said there was some.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Beds uncomfortable and we all left with sore backs. Will never book with wotif again as the booking summary was unclear. Tried to cancel the booking beforehand, but was told there would be at least a 2 hour wait to speak to anyone, so was faced with loosing all our money or hsving to pay extra. Location good, but furniture tired.

Travelled with family
It was a close walk to football. Very hard to find in dark needs light on number at gate. Parking was confusing as I had two different instructions of where to park sent to me. Tight car parking . Photos on booking site nothing like room. Dust on pillows had to change poor. Heater noisy. No full toilet roll. Half a bottle of shampoo but no conditioner. Very disappointed 😞 Toilet doesn’t flush properly.
