If this hotel is not an embarrassment to the IHG Group, then it should be.
For potential visitors: if you enjoy the smell of raw sewage (on a good day 'treated sewage' - when the wind is favourable) then this is the place for you. The entire hotel stinks (and this is not a metaphorical description, although it works just as well).
The whole place stinks; from the entrance, through to the reception area, to the exclusive outside deck for smokers (replete with rat traps and a bewildering array of pigeon droppings) through to every floor.
The 'management' - and the term is deliberately placed within inverted commas - does its best to mask the attendant smells with a cornucopia of equally disgusting synthetic scents, but the smell is as pervasive as the cloying, sycophantic subservience of the staff whose training must have been initiated by someone with an unhealthy reverence for the British colonialists.
On the positive side: the rooms are ok, and the food at the ONE restaurant is reasonably good. They make a decent attempt at passing off yesterday's unwanted food at the next 'buffet', and the local, freshly prepared cuisine, is very good. There you go, a positive comment.
That's about as good as it gets. It's taken them 7 months to rebuild (sorry, 'renovate'), the pool area - for heaven's sake, a single builder with a trowel and a bucket could have done the same in 4 months - and there are still (February 2015) no signs that it will be completed - it remains a construction site (albeit marginally more aesthetically pleasing than the hotel's environs).
Bad hotels often have a 'good location' to temper the awfulness of the property. This hotel is in the middle of nowhere; 50 yards from a fetid river; 75 yards from a sewage treatment plant, and 30 yards (if you get the wrong room) from a railway line.
How people can rate this establishment as 'excellent' or even 'good' is utterly beyond me. Oh yes, it's dirt cheap. 'Dirt' being an operative (and appropriate) word.
And there is one consolation: it's not as bad as the Holiday Inn next door. That has to be something to be proud of.
