O'Malleys was recommended to us by a friend of a friend who spoke very highly of it. Our experience was not so positive.
We arrived after the hotel after 24hrs of travelling, only to find there was no hot water - the boiler was being fixed. We waited around 5hrs for our longed-for showers, but there were no towels in the room. The maid scolded us for not using the ones we were given!?
I found a toe-nail clipping in my bed, which suggested to me that the sheets hadn't been changed from the guests before. The room was infested with spiders - small, but annoying. The room was extremely noisy - the windows shook all night and the traffic noises were horrendous.
