Arriving at the hotel at around 10:30pm we were presented with the task of scrambling over the unfinished road with our luggage just to get in the door. Staff were friendly, if a little slow, at checking our large group in. The hotel is split into two buildings - I was directed back outside and into a neighbouring building with an eerie abandoned feeling. Up in the tiny (and I mean ridiculously tiny) lift and into my room - which also had a dining area with plastic table, microwave, fridge and kettle. All I wanted to do was have a quick shower after a long day of travelling, and sleep before my early morning start. Unfortunately, the bathroom was so disgusting I couldn't face showering and had to make do with a wash in the sink. Pictures will be added to this review later - i've never stayed anywhere so filthy. The bedroom is obviously being done up - new looking bedspreads and lamps, but furniture that wasn't quite finished. Thanks to the poorly designed bedside table, the bedroom door wouldn't even close!
Also, I realise the it is winter, but I didn't expect to be getting up in the middle of the night to put on jumpers and socks! If the hotel is open year round it should provide extra bedding for the cold nights.
It's a shame, because the fact that the decor was a work in progress wouldn't have been a big deal to me, but there is no excuse for the level of filth in the bathroom. Foul.
