This establishment is VERY far off calling itself a FOUR star bed and breakfast - my room was dark, had a view of black trolley bins and the very noisy road, 1 tiny bar of soap between the shower and basin, no wastepaper bin in the bedroom, no tea or water and the room itself was in need of urgent maintenance. Old office furniture and mismatched furniture has been used throughout. My colleagues' room was filthy and they received 1 thread bare towel for 2 people. The window has no security and opens onto the busy road which has a very low wall. I had no batteries in my remote and the bedside light did not work. When I went to ask if I could get batteries and some tea, myself and another guest were left to look for ourselves as there was nobody available.
Another couple traveling with us were told telephonically the day before their arrival, that there was no accommodation for them, despite them having confirmed.
This is suitable for a STUDENT or OVERSEAS YOUTH traveling who is expecting basic accommodation.
The price is the same of some exceptional and magnificent Bed and Breakfasts in the area.
The night time noise was constant.
When I asked for a business card, there were non at reception - this place needs a serious look at its level of professionalism, maintenance and the market.
I wonder how the rating of four stars has been kept for so long and not reviewed...
