2/5 Poor

Travelled with group
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This place has you park in a lot behind the property & then drag luggage through the parking lot to the restaurants entrance. VERY AWKWARD and hard to maneuver. We were informed upon arrival that the restaurant closes by 8:30 & that all 3 bars aren’t open. That included NO MUSIC. We were told to go across the street to another place that has music etc. we went across and NOPE! No music there & we got 1 drink and exited the VERY LOCALS pub. The website painted a great experience and it should definitely have included all the closed amenities. Also, there was no way to turn the heat down and we all slept on top of covers and basically sweat all night.
