I didn’t like the fact we booked a meal in the restaurant for 8.15.We we’re called in and seated at this time got our drinks and about 5 minutes later we ordered .At 9.20 the waiter who took our order came over and asked if we were ok into which I replied we’re starving.He couldn’t believe we still hadn’t our food . Then around 9.30 we finally ate .Food was beautiful . Then we went back to our room which was room 135 .The music started playing and it was so loud my child couldn’t sleep and could we .Then the noise outside our window of people leaving the hotel was awful.To make matters worse went for breakfast this morning after a sleepless night and it was awful.Went in was took to our seat asked did we want tea or coffee and toast.We said tea and toast.So we went to get our fry o by the way no bacon .We went back to our table after asking 3 workers for tea and toast finally a girl came when our food was half eaten as we couldn’t wait to get a cup of tea.Didnt even finish our breakfast as we had enough.Wont be back in a hurry. So disappointed as we traveled so far for a nice Easter break .Thank God I didn’t stay 2 nights .We haves stayed in many a hotel and this was such a waste of money.

Hotel was very nice, but the bedroom was more like a 1star. The toilet door did not lock and when you got the toilet to close it just popped open, no privacy. The shower had no pressure, the extraction fan did not work. They should have a shaving mirror in the bathroom as the lighting was not good and the big mirror in the bathroom was to far away to a good shave. There were broken and cracked tiles in the bath and right beside the controls of the shower. I was really disappointed with this so call 4 Star Hotel I did take alot of photos of the pitiful bedroom i do believe, because we booked the Jacksons Hotel online through Expedia breakfast was not included i did complain the day we were leaving. This so-called 4 star hotel then took 2 drinks of our total bill. Very disappointed customers.
