There was a pretty wide opening below the door of my room. So we could hear everything in the hallway. Other than that everything was fine.

While the exterior of this hotel is beautiful, the interior is dated and tired. The bedding was reminiscent of the 80s, the woodwork surrounding the mini-fridge was chipped, the bathroom door was scratched and dirty (no lock on door, no bathroom fan). The pool was murky (we decided not to go in). The hot tub had a yellowish film that we attempted to skim off, but it continued to bubble up. We did not stay long. Please Lord Elgin - update your rooms and amenities!
