The hotel is located close to the centre of town and about a 15 minute walk from the railway station and also from the lake.
There were two of us and we had booked two double rooms to use as single rooms as the price was very reasonable. When we checked in, we were almost told off for doing this and they rearranged the rooms so that we occupied one single and one double. They dropped the rate accordingly but it's hard to understand why they moved us, as they lost out on money by doing this.
The rooms were not good, it was hard to find any positives. The curtains were paper thin and hung about 2 feet away from the window and so were virtually useless. We were woken early by the sunlight pouring in.
The rooms were so hot it was very hard to sleep, it was literally like sleeping in a sauna!! There were electric fans in the rooms but they were too noisy to have on at night.
The water in the taps was very cloudy and so we decided not to drink it. The bathrooms were also tired and old. There were plenty of TV channels available although the TV looked almost antique.
One of the rooms had excellent Wi-Fi but the other had no signal at all.
Breakfast was poor with only a small amount to choose from. When we asked for the orange juice to be replaced, we watched the lady put a small amount of juice in a large jug and fill it up with tap water!!
The bread was dry and not fresh, even though it was a weekday. The yoghurts were not in a cold container and were starting to turn.
We were going to stay two nights but left after the first due to all of the hotel's shortcomings. When we checked out, a different receptionist made a comment about us having booked two double rooms when there were only two of us, as if we were stupid for doing so. We will definitely not be returning to the Hotel Bacchus!
