Got off to a bad start in a smoking room when I had requested non-smoking. Very little worked. No hot water, shower head fitting broken, fridge not working, safe (which you could pick up and walk away with) not working. Burnt carpet, stained walls, ceiling ruined by floods.
Next room was a little better but the stains and ceiling damage seem to be a universal feature.
Food is OK but not inspiring, staff friendly, common areas (except the ceilings) good.
Expect to smoke other peoples cigarettes - in the lift, in the toilet, in the dining room.
Location is OK if you are there for the hotels facilities but inconvenient (25minutes by taxi to town) for anything else. The local area has little to offer.
