Wow, where do I start?!
I travel a lot including more basic parts of Africa and Asia but this place had so many 'issues' I really am compelled to share some of them. I spent 13 days here and it was an exercise in developing a zen mentality!
Issues include -
-Staff using the entrance area as their smoking area
-The foul smell down the bottom of the hotel outside the kitchen where the clothing racks are
-Smell from plumbing in room - absolutely vile, smelt like a pub toilet at midnight.
-Some staff indifferent bordering on rude.
-State of the breakfast area - walk in after 8.30 and it looks like a bomb has gone off. The staff have no interest in clearing till the last moment which means clearing rubbish of tables yourself to create a place to eat.
-It's directly across the road from the Moris Pub, the main pub for young Brits - say no more.
-Paper thin doors
-Noise echoing through every floor and room, especially from the banging of the swinging doors into the kitchen. This is heard clear as day on all three floors, I had quite a few discussions with other guests about this. The manager/s were asked on at least three occasions by different guests if they could simply chock the doors open but to no avail!
Hence, you definitely don't need an alarm in the morning.
-I counted 37 (!!) cigarette butts on the terrace outside my room. They were their for my entire stay.
-Neither of the two rooms I stayed in had a shower head which could be mounted on the wall. The answer? Juggle it.
As for water pressure, an incontinent old man could piddle with more pressure.
-The bathroom sink had no cold water.
So the question is this - does a 'hotel' where the staff culture is so bad, deserve to get away with so many problems, most of them totally fixable if the staff gave a crap?
Fortunately (or unfortunately) it's a relatively cheap place in a great position near the centre of town and near the ski lifts.
