- No wi-fi in rooms.
- No tea and coffee in room - extremely unhappy about this, and that I was not told by reception or instructed as to how to get tea and coffee in the morning.
- No basic freeview channels.
- No working AC
Also, my friend visited the hotel to bring me something important that I required only to be stopped abruptly and told by a staff member that visitors are NOT allowed - I found this rude and very intrusive on my stay at the hotel...something of which I have never experienced before in hotels. I understand that this is a cheap hotel, which I assume is the reason for all the other below satisfactory issues I encountered, but being a cheap hotel doesn't mean the staff should intrude on people's stay and keep tabs on guests making us feel as through we're being watched.
Started off nicely, only to be spoiled from then on. Would have been okay with the stay if it wasn't for that comment.
