When we booked, we were warned that the shower in our room will be small, module type shower. So the size of the room or the tiny shower/WC was not at all a problem.
But when we tried to actually use the shower, we couldn't - the shower head was so clogged with limescale that only one hole actually sprayed! We rang the reception and the response was 'yeah, ok, go and use the communal shower down the hall, we're too busy to sort it out for you'. We tried the communal shower, but the ceiling was mouldy, as was the area around the tap and brown limescale was plastered on the bath tub.
We decided to use the sharp end of my earring to pierce through the holes on the shower head in our room, rather than risk using the communal bathroom. When we rang the reception to tell them, the response was again dismissive and at no point an apology was offered.
we went on to having a lovely evening, as it was our friend's wedding, which was held at the hotel. Unfortunately, when trying to revive ourselves in the morning with a nice cup of coffee, the UHT milk left on the tea tray was sour! The taste certainly jolted us back into awakeness, but we would have prefered a gentler approach. It takes a very long time for UHT milk in a sealed container to go off, so we were wondering when it was last changed...
It is a shame about the muck, dirt and poor attitude of some staff, because otherwise the place was quite nice, and the prices very reasonable. But we will not be recommending this hotel to anyone,
