I stayed here for 15 nights. The service of reception was excellent. The hotel cook was miserable & at times very reluctant to cook! Even to the extent that they 'ran out' of coffee on numerous occasions.
Furthermore, there was theft from my room & I can only say it was the cleaner. I should have raised this before I checked out but I felt it would be ignored. I now feel the same, they always say that belongings are an occupants responsibility.
The cleaner was the only person to enter my room other than myself, I presume no one else did when I was out.
When I went out, I left $100 hidden amongst some books. The next day, I looked & searched but it was gone. I looked because I had absolutely no money thus had to go to atm. I was hung over & thought they won't do a thing so I left it, blaming myself.
However, I just checked my suitcase & have now realised that a mini HD camera has gone, my bags are locked when travelling so clearly this was taken along with the money.
So, my tip is be wary if leaving anything in the rooms or tell them you do not want the room cleaned.
