I really don't have many positive things to say about this place. It's not awful, but the staff are a bit unsettling. From filling in the form at check-in to being shown the room, the interaction felt kinda like the start of a crap horror film, but it may have just been us.
The place is a lot more dated than it looks in the photos. We booked a double deluxe room, but like the other reviews were "upgraded" to the suite which consisted of very little natural light, and would be fine if it was just the bedroom/bathroom. The extra "suite" part with kitchen and tv/sitting area actually somehow makes the experience worst. It feels soulless and badly thought out. The suite features a redundant outside area with a sliding door and no seating.
We didn't hang around for long as the bar area isn't very inviting and we had stuff to do. The Internet is reasonably fast, but nothing special. The breakfast is terrible. We were handed a badly structured form to tick what we wanted. Having done this the waiter scribbled out the stuff we couldn't have and eventually brought half-toasted bread with fake, sugary butter, carton orange juice, two weirdly poached eggs and a terrible omelette. Even the fruit salad was crap.
I'm definitely not staying here again. Perhaps it's because we stayed in a decent hotel for a few nights before this place, but I think this place is just very mediocre.
