Stayed here for 1 night, thinking how bad can it be? Well: Very! It started with a 10 minute wait at reception - the lady at reception having an lenghty and not so important phone call. Arriving in the room looked dated with "interesting" stains on the floor and the room in a less than prestine state.
I had a suspicion in the evening something bubbled up in the shower when I flushed the toilet, which was confirmed to me the next morning when, after flushing the toilet, I saw what can only be described a "fountain of feces". The whole shower basin filled up with raw sewage, and have pictures to back this up.
Needless to say this was my queue to get out of there asap, and I found out other unit had been suffering the same issue. Despite the full refund I would never stay there again in my life or advice anyone to do so either. In the 100's of hotels, B&B's and motels I've stayed at over the years this is easily the worst.
