During August we had come to this hotel with high hopes of a 4 star stay- we were seriously disappointed!! On arrival, teenage looking staff who were draped over the reception area slowly checked us in. We were thrust a key and that was that. On entering our room ,which we later called our 'cell' , we were greeted by a bathroom which was smaller than my arm span and a view of the docks. The road was extremely noisy and even we had wanted to put up with the noise and marvel at the seaview of the docks, the small balcony only had one chair! When we asked if it would be possible to change our room for a higher room to avoid the smog and noise my boyfriend was rather abruptly told that all the rooms were occupied and to put on the air conditioning to escape the fumes! This said, during our breakfast the next day we only saw a few other guests having breakfast and never saw another guest in the corridors or the bar areas( which we always closed!).
The hotel does have a nice but expensive restaurant on the top floor and another terrace bar on a lower floor. However, when we went to find the terrace bar there was nowhere that one could sit and no bar to get a drink from. It looked more like a building site than a bar area! In short the only good things about the hotel were its cleanliness ( a very good daily clean of the room) and the top floor restaurant- Not really enough positives to warrant it's 4* rating me thinks! Oh dear...
