The words 'mediocre' and 'average' seem to appear in lots and reviews - and no wonder. The building is modern, the location really good with spectacular views, and yet...
Even the rooms are not at all bad, and all the plumbing works. To be fair, the hotel was suffering from a powercut on our second evening, after a day of torrential rain, and that can hardly have been the hotel's fault, except that the surrounding area seemed not to be affected. An emergency generator kept some of the lights on, and the restaurant kitchen struggled on, but without the benefit of extractor fans, leaving an unpleasant cooking odour throughout the restaurant area. The food was unremarkable.
The staff are unresponsive. There is a melancholy, soul-less air about the place. With some imaginative management input, this could be a decent hotel. Will they get their act together in time for the World Cup in 2014?
