I stayed at the Millenium Manner Hotel from October 13 to 20, 2013. If you are looking for a top notch hotel, with sterile yes ma’am/sir and no ma’am/sir, kiss your butt service – don’t stay here! On the other hand, if you want a warm family-like and professional environment where EVERYONE refers to you by name, addressing your every need with genuine commitment, then here is where you want to stay!
The external structural design of the Millennium Manor Hotel (relative to the other buildings) sets itself apart from the other buildings in the street. The reception lounge is clean and very pleasantly decorated, certainly gives the feeling of a fancy, warm and welcoming facility – makes you ask yourself “Wow, I wonder what my room will look like.”
After providing ID and paying for the stay, my suitcases were taken to my room. The steps are attractively tiled, but the tiles are smooth, so if they are wet you may slide; additionally they are a tad steep and deep, but there is a large silver railing to hold on to – unfortunately, there is no elevator. The staircase is satisfactorily lit as are the corridors. I was escorted to my room by security who switched on my AC showed me how to operate the cable TV, rather friendly and helpful service may I add.
The room was stunning for USD85.00/night! The walls have trowel plastic which is coated with charming glitter. The rooms are carpeted and at no time did I appreciate the “quite strong” carpet odour mentioned by another reviewer; there was a mild carpet odour, a feature of most carpeted rooms which are closed up. The bed was standard size and well made up with white sheets and a cosy comforter. The room was equipped with a clean and properly functioning AC, cable TV, small refrigerator and ceiling fan, which also had 5 fluorescent lights. There is also a small desk, clothes cupboard and a wall safe (within the cupboard), there is also a night stand with a light, telephone and digital radio-clock. There is one window with three layers of decent curtains, not sure of the name given to the style. The view from my north facing window consisted of the roof top of an abandoned school and a Brickdam Cathedral, which is just across Camp Road.
The bathroom has an inviting décor and the shower is LARGE – more than enough space for you and your loved one!!! The shower tiles are smooth, be carefu; there is a small non-slip mat in the shower, just be sure to stand on it! The usual and expected hotel soap and shampoo are in there. There were two sets of fresh and lily white towels in the bathroom, each set with three different sizes.
Breakfast did not enthral me in the least, it was satisfactory nonetheless. For dinner, be sure to ask about the Italian shop and Mario’s Pizza, good stuff!!!
Room service was satisfactory, although my colleague thinks the service is less than stellar.
There is a lounge on the top floor, guys, the view is simply spectacular, with a pleasing view of the North to South of Georgetown. The staff are pleasant, friendly and accommodating. The foods served include Bar-B-Que wings, fried prans, buffalo prawns, fish fingers, chicken nuggets, chicken wings served with fries. Be warned, the food is rather salty, well at least for a anti-salt individual.
The hotel has free wireless Internet service, which is speedy enough to provide smooth surfing and movie watching, it gives a download speeds of about 1.8Mbps and an upload speeds of about 0.8Mbps. Reception will give you the password upon arrival.
The most annoying occurrence is the frequent loss of electricity, but not to worry the hotel has a generator, you’ll just have to put up with the hum of the generator.
I had a problem with my wall safe, I reported it and within one minute someone was there to fix it, I am not exaggerating. I wanted more hangers, I received an additional 5 hangers in less than 3 minutes, again, no exaggeration.
Do not overlook this facility as a budget option for your stay in Georgetown, your experience with this warm, genuine and dedicated bunch of employees will surely bring a smile to your face, and comfort to your stay – you’ll be like family. Ask for Ryan, Sebastian, Wonda, Natasha, Fiona, Sharon, Adrian or Dale; don’t forget Mr. Baccus, a quiet and unassuming gent, he’s the boss and is equally as warm and accommodating.
