We arrived to be greeted By a miserable member of staff.. She claimed that we were lucky as they were out of standard rooms so we had one with a sea view! Fab.. Or so we thought!
At first glance the room looked worn out, tired and generally grubby! It also had a musty smell! The sea view was minimal as pylons and cables blocked the view. I guess that's not the hotels fault but I certainly wouldn't pay extra for the view!
On closer inspection we found the floor to be filthy, looked as though it had never been cleaned! The bathroom was FULL of mould and stunk so bad! We could barely walk in it without heaving. The bed clothes were filthy and stained and looked 100 years old. The bed was also 2 singles pushed togther..fine..but they were at different heights!
The towels were ripped and grey - no longer white! This place was revolting. We called reception to say we were not happy. Some Thai lady came up to have a look.. Nodded..and left. We gave them 20 mins before calling down to see what was going on... Know one seemed to know what we were talking about but eventually moved to a smaller room at the back with no view but at least this one was a tiny bit better! There was not as much mould..the smell was not quite as bad and it looked a tiny bit cleaner.
We decided to put up with it for one night...however it was so noisy with doors slamming..people stomping around upstairs all night and the fear of getting eaten by bed bugs and insects it wasn't the best nights sleep. The breakfast was not up to much either.
Overall do not go here! It was horrible! Thank god we only booked for one night!
