I am so extremely disappointed with this hotel. I am currently staying in this hotel and I am so glad I have only wasted one night here.
Upon arrival we were offered no help with our bags. Checking in was very brief with little to no explanation of the hotel and area. Upon arrival into our non smoking room we discovered the terrible smoking odour, I would have normally requested a room change but arriving late at night I was to exhausted to enquire.
The bathroom is outdated and was not cleaned properly, I do love to find strangers pubic hairs on the floor!!!
Rooms overall were okay, very outdated and would have been good in the 80's.
We weren't provided the wifi password on check in which to me would have made more sense?
Lastly my partner and I got to enjoy two single beds pushed together when the request was made for a double. By this I mean two completely separately made up beds just pushed together.
Overall this was by far in my opinion no where near worth it's 5 star rating. We stayed at the 4 star Amalia hotel up the road about a week ago which included breakfast in the rate and was by far 100 times better than this place.
