We stayed here for a month because our company reserved it. We moved a short distance down the road to a much better place. The maid and wait staff personnel are very cordial but not trained well. The WIFI is pretty much non-existent. Maybe 1.5 MB up and down load that works about 10% of the time. The hotel is... More

If you like to be given the correct change and not 100-200 less, don't go here. On several occasions the hotel has made excuses regarding the lack of change. I have been here several times now and it's happened repeatedly. Also the management are not at all friendly!! One manager approached me at the pool informing me my drink was... More

The sportsmans is a little rough round the edges. The food is adequate and appropriately priced, it'll fill you up without feeling disappointed. The bar on the evening is good fun and worth sticking around if you enjoy a drink or 2.

The wireless internet was not working and the staff went ahead and gave us an access code. We were later told it was down and will be back in an hour as it was being worked on. We left without the internet having returned. There was no order in the dining hall and the food was very bad in quality... More

Have had the privilege to patronize the establishment for 30 yrs & I must say it has aged like good wine. The hotel keeps getting better & growing bigger. In my visit this time, I couldn't find my way around the hotel: it's just grown too big from its modest backwater senior military after work meeting point. Nice place to... More

This hotel has long passed its prime. The place is very run down, gloomy and neglected. All conference rooms need huge maintenance & renovation. I complained for two days on the conditions of the ladies' restrooms - which were terrible. The staff did their best I have to say but I am very glad we decided not to book this... More
