I write this review with a sad heart to think that a place which looks really good on paper could let me down.
The Staff at the recpetion desk were very good and I take my hat off to them especially seeing I had stern works to the young man who was booking me in when he told me that there would be a 1.5% charge for using my credit card. I did ask where it was stated on there web site or when I made a booking. He couldn't answer it. The next morning I challenged the manager who again could only say that they usually tell people as they are checking in. NOT GOOD ENOUGH. Don't offer credit card payments.
The room had been freshly painted, some new furniture, television and bed. Very comfortable lounge and bed. Some of the appliances in the kitchen looked a little sad. I found the extra blanket in a cupboard in lounge. The wardbrobe has no door on it so I felt as if I was looking at a mess in a cupboard. Strange.
The bathroom was clean but the basin was behind the door so if you wanted to use the mirror, you had to close the door. The toilet bowl could have been cleaned but it wasn't. The show head look as if it could have fallen down any second as there was a drip coming from the join and I could see the corsion on it. All the taps in the place are old and need to be replaced.
I found the noise from next door and the halls was alarming. I really didn't want to here people slamming doors as they come home and the people's conversations coming through the walls. I really didn't like the fact the hallways were open without an outside door.
The place is not worth the money money and I would have to think very hard before I stayed there again.
