We stayed two nights in this hotel and saw real potential, however the good aspects were easily forgotten for some negatives. We arrived and were nicely told that we could not check in until two and we could leave our luggage. We were told to leave our luggage in the reception foyer in the corner, which I was not especially comfortable with but as we had four suitcases we had little choice. Had I known the staff completely disappear from 12-2 I would not have left them there, as any one could have taken them.
Our room was lovely, but was made up for four people which was why we had the larger size. We also had a great view of the mountain which was great. The room had a really large balcony with nice outdoor furniture. The bathroom was quite big too.
Breakfast was appalling, with microwaved eggs cut up to look like scrambled eggs and everything else crudely put in large bowls. We ate scarcely there, not trusting much. We also noticed that the same people on reception were serving breakfast, as well as cleaning.
Perhaps the biggest turn off of the hotel was the staff who looked like they were strip club owners (just downstairs- gross!). They were large, burley men who never smiled and walked around in a intimidating manner. Hardly a good front of service for a hotel, and did nothing to make us feel like it was a quality hotel.
