I paid extra for a balcony room which we were given on the 2nd floor after being unhappy with 1st floor... More

Do not stay in this hotel! We got this night in the hotel California very cheap through groupon, thank god as in my opinion we still did not get value for money! The room we were given was extremely dated and in serious need of decorating. The carpet was shockingly filthy, the furniture did not match and bits were hanging... More

So unprofessional and shabby! Around the reception looks alright I suppose but the rooms are so old and dated they desperately need a refurb.

The receptionist was lovely but the woman... More
