“Aweful people”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

I stayed here for two nights with my boyfriend. Paying 1400rps including breakfast you would think it would be nice. The room smelt horrible, the air con kept turning off, the tv didn't work. The bathroom floor was wet and the toilet seat had no been cleaned. When we went for breakfast I was told I couldn't have corn flakes as not included. Only a boiled egg, or toast. The toast came out as just bread, I sent it back to be toasted, then I asked for some butter and hot told I would have to pay extra for butter!! I refused. Also orderd an orange juice (at extra charge) and got fanta, I kept trying to say that it wasn't juice, he just kept saying yes, juice. The plate was also filthy as we're the jugs of milk and coffee looked like they had never been cleaned! We checked out the next day but had to wait untill the evening for a train, we staying in the lobby for a few hours. I asked to use the toilet and they said it was not possible! After asking why for about 10mins he finally have me a key to one vacant (dirty) room to use the toilet, with no lights or running water. The reason I'm so annoyed is the way the staff treated us and spoke to us. Absolutely Aweful place!

My girlfriend and I had this hotel booked through a tour and knew it is always a gamble. This one didn't pay off. The staff are rude, the hotel doesn't seem to get cleaned and smells. The worst experience was when we had breakfast (included free from our voucher) l am not joking but everything deserved complaining about. The guy was even aggressive towards me when I explained that orange soda is not Orange juice, as ordered. Also when we ordered toast if came out as bread and we were expected to pay extra for butter. The cutlery and plates had dried old food on them. When I asked to speak to the manager they just laughed. I had to walk to reception myself. I know u might put it down to a unique experience but we talk to a rickshaw driver and he said he gets told similar stories. Definitely not worth the 1400rs we paid. Please heed my warnings. Phill from uk
