    Hi there, we've booked this hotel in October & becoming increasingly concerned at the reviews! Is it worth changing the hotel? We're looking for 5*luxury for my 40th birthday. We normally stay in 4* hotels & are pretty laid back people. Just looking for it to be clean, good food & relaxing!

    Response from Paul D | Reviewed this property |
    Yes pool towels are available. A small deposit is required at reception. You then get a ticket which you exchange for a towel, then exchange your old towel for a new one everyday.
