Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Rather disappointing with rather rude housekeeping staff who almost chased us out at 11am on the dot. Only 1 shampoo mjni bottle provided for 3 people and not topped up. Some of the dirty towels were not even replaced. Also accused of taking TV remote control when i was on the floor
