It's common in China to stay in a Hotel and comment 'you know, five years ago if we had stayed here, it would have been nice'. Well this is that hotel of five years ago.
It is obviously newly renovated and still in fair condition but the dark wood that adorns the place is getting knocked about already and starting to show a bit of wear, and the hotel in general is treading a very thin line between atmospheric and gloomy. I wouldn't recommend a visit in five years time anyway!
The service was pretty non existent the few times we required it with check in and out laboriously slow. The food in the Chinese restaurant is ok but again service pretty shoddy - it took five minutes for them to understand an order for a beer and a further ten minutes to deliver it.
On a further visit we arrived around 20 minutes before they closed (Bad form I know!) and proceeded to order. They then came back 20 minutes later and told us the chef had gone or something like that and asked us to pay for our tea and leave. Would have preferred they'd have told us they were closed when we arrived rather than wasting our time but meh, China.
Breakfast was average, the only western option is bacon and the chinese fayre is pretty awful. They seem to change the menu each day though so you might be lucky and get the char sui buns.
The hotel is in walking distance to the Temple and Lost City (closed until April) but there is not a great deal in the immediate vacinity. If going out to eat you need to walk past the temple about ten minutes away.
Must be better options in Zhuhai than this though and at 400rmb a night I wasn't too impressed. Doubt I will return.
