This hotel rates as one of the very worst I have ever stayed in. In previous reviews it was noted by guests that the bathroom in one of the triple rooms was unusable as the bath had no plug and the shower didn't have a socket to attach it to above the bath that would make it useable. Nothing has changed there. They either do not read their reviews or they do not care.
The room was decrepit, shabby and dreary with old, damaged paintwork and tired, drab decor. It would be put to shame by most prison cells and was probably in dire need of redecoration some 30 years ago. As one leaves the main hotel to reach the annex where the room is located, one passes over a threshold where many tiles are cracked smashed or absent. One is greeted on reaching the annex by an overwhelming stench of raw sewage.
The staff, and they are numerous, all wander around in black suits more appropriate in a 5 star hotel than in this hideous backwater slum. When these 'minor' defects were pointed out to the be-suited staff member who manned the reception, she simply stated that there was no point in talking to her as 'she was just employed there'. The staggering indifference of the staff was only matched by their impressive lack of proper training.
Don't eat in the restaurant. The first clue is given when you are asked to choose your desert at the same time as your entree and main course. They ask because the 'chef' needs to have adequate time to defrost your desert which is, of course, still ice-cold and tasteless when the unfortunate moment arrives when you encounter it later on in the meal.
The advantage of knowing that this establishment forms part of a chain lies in realisation that there are a number of other ‘hotels’ one can usefully avoid.
