I booked this place because I wanted to be in a quiet location away from the christmas festivities and it received good reviews. However, I was disappointed. Its also tough to write this review because the lady who manages the hotel is so helpful and friendly and really does goes the extra mile.
Good points include:-
1. Quiet location (which is what i wanted for Christmas)
2. Tasty and well priced breakfast (not included in room rate)
3. Very tasty food available at the resturant.
4. Lovely pool (although I didnt get the time to use it)
5. Clean room
6. One computer with internet access available in lobby.
7. No international calling facilities available. However, the hotel manager was very helpful and arranged for me to make a skype call, free of charge!
This is probably the main reason why i feel guilty about highlighting the following issues that need improvement:-
1. Rooms are older than the pics on hotels.com reflect and decor is a bit dated and uncoordinated.
2. The bed is hard but the pillows are much worse. Its like trying to snuggle up on a brick. I couldnt get comfy and needed a massage to help with the neck strain.
3. The bathroom is odd. The bath area is raised and has a shower curtain. Water drains towards the toilet and basin. Im not sure the water unit works well because the shower remained luke warm to somewhat cold.
4. No hair dryer in room. This wouldnt normally bother me but after a luke warm to cold shower -I started feeling sorry for myself and really wanted to dry my hair before bedtime.
I really do wish the best for this hotel and hope they will improve the facilities.
