sarmick Families - TripAdvisor review

Our family of 5 stayed for 3 nights. Great location, we walked into the city for shopping and food which was great, and all the museums etc were a short drive away. I've given a 3 as it the rooms are a bit tired and we needed to ask how to find information about the hotel as there are no hotel books in the room (assuming due to covid?) so all information is from various QR codes around the room. The staff were all helpful, even when different guests decided to take our table at breakfast when we went to the buffet to get food. A little odd of those other people, but the staff found us a new table. While not the fault of the hotel, the lifts were a pain! Other guests seemed to find it hard to work out how to insert their cards to get to their level. On the way out a few times, we had to wait while full lifts went past our floor. It was common to be stuck waiting 4-5 times to get a lift down. The pool was great fun for the kids and the beds were very comfortable and it was lovely and quiet at night. Although, the "ding" from the lifts were quite loud from our room in the mornings. Perhaps this should be changed to be silent? Overall though, a lovely stay.

The rooms are ok, but the food in the restaurant was a little limited and disappointing to saythe least.

Reception were courteous and helpful and the room was very clean It is concerning the lack of eating utensils supplied, one knife in the cutlery drawer is a little strange when three forks are supplied.

Katrina O. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

Room was fine, queen bed felt more like double. I disliked the sink out of the bathrooms and the swinging mirror that was unable to stay in one place. The tv would not stay on , had to turn on and off for the signal to stabilise , and a poor that it was free to air. The problem in the room was the mechanical noise that seemed too loud for the air con. It halted at 11pm , only to roar up again at 6am. The noise was one thing , but the vibration around the bed from the noise made it impossible to sleep.
