Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The staff were helpful, friendly, went above and beyond to make sure the guests (not just myself) were happy and did everything possible to correct any issues. (Front Desk and the breakfast server were fantastic) and practiced Social Distancing appropriately (as well as signage and adjustments to facilities - thank you for doing so) The facilities were great but there were some minor cleanliness issues in the cleaning of the shower. Again minor things such as those but this may be because of my next point. I do know that there is under-staffing which is stressing out the employees. The staff are trying their best some are visibly stressed. Working in the travel industry myself I know this can be from several factors. However, if the under-staffing is intentional to save the company money this is unacceptable.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
Hotel in general is very clean, rooms are great and bed very comfortable. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Gym clean. However, I booked the hotel exclusively for the slide and hot tub, both of which have been unavailable for over a year. Not covid-safety related - the slide needs parts. I would have booked elsewhere with a slide had I known since other hotels' slides and hottubs are in use yet they refused to allow me to cancel once I found out (person on the phone actually said "It's Covid man, everyone is struggling"). Pool was also pretty dirty and dingy.
