Windows were opened by cleaners during the day on a day that was forecast for heavy storms. Due to the small rooms (which there is enough space to survive) our luggage was saturated.
Thinking it wa an honest mistake and in need for some towels or similar to dry things we asked at reception, where the grumpy old man offered no apology and huffed and sighed when towels or something to dry the water was asked for.
We booked a day trip with some of the female staff who were very friendly and helpful, as our pickup for the trip was early we were told we could get breakfast early. However arriving with 2 other couples that morning we had the pleasure of the grumpy old man who would not let us eat breakfast at the previously arranged time.
There was mold/grime in the bathroom and shower and the bedroom walls could do with a wipe down.
That said Location was only 600 meters or so to the train station and buses. Restraunts and shopping just around the corner...
