Spacious family unit
Great place for family stay. Thermal pools are a highlight for the kids. Kitchen was well stocked with stove top and microwave. Hospo staff were excellent and friendly with any request. Building is old so window panes are obviously not new but had to keep telling my kids to not touch them. Overall great stay and nice spacious unit for family.

Older style Hotel
The Hotel feels quite dated and in an old style which may appeal to certain types of travellers. I think it needs a little updating. Some rooms downstairs do not have a window and feel claustophobic. The staff were very nice and moved me to a room with a window upstairs which made my stay much nicer. The shower was either hot or cold and the shower spray was low (I am short at just over 5 foot)

4/10 Fair

Old and decrepit.
This hotel is marketed as a old hotel with character. Let’s be honest there’s character and then there’s old and decrepit. Leaving a hole in the wall because you removed a heater isn’t character it’s decrepit. We stayed in a 2bdrm and it was terrible. Old, falling apart and in need of serious work. Hot plate that didn’t work, tv that didn’t get signal, the list goes on. In no way is this value for money. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone travelling as a family. I’ve seen caravans in better condition.
