So after a long flight from the UK the last thing you need is a long check in. This took over 25 minutes which left me really irritated. Not how I like to start my vacations. The Hotel was being refurbished which is fine and dandy until you come to your room that is stacked with chairs outside it. The... More

As a result we waited 20 minute to check in. As time passed by more and more people arrived and waited... More

If you are looking for somewhere that is run down, where the ceiling will cave in on you, the toilets choose when they want to flush, & bathroom fixtures and furniture are out dated .... This is the place for you! My cousin was visiting & booked this place. I went to visit them & this is how I found... More

When I read the reviews I was a quite worried. This is NOT a five set hotel but you get what you pay for. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful, I would say there is only one person who isn't. Our room was large and on the whole pretty clean. I did get a bit of cleaner for... More
