Hotel is nicr. Not outstanding but nice. Rooms are basic as it mini bar. Beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms need a renovation or just some repairs. All in all I would stay again for overnight stay. 🙃

Sorry not a toddler friendly pool but across the road in the park there is an awesome kids playground with water play area. And further up the path is a great community pool area with suitable kids pool.
