For anyone who has watched Fawlty Towers you know exactly what I'm talking about. If not then YouTube it! Rooms are very average, however you can't beat the location. If you expect the worst then you will be pleasantly surprised. The lady on the front desk is Marlo and she's just the best. So friendly and helpful. My mum and I just Adored her. If your used to staying in 4 and 5 star hotels (like my mum and I) it will be a culture shock, make sure you bring along your sense of humor....
Our toilet got blocked with feoces floating in it (neither of us had done a number two) we were told by front desk to come collect the plunger and attend to it ourselves. Mum was disgusted however I thought this was just hilarious. They finally sent a plain clothed man to fix it who looked like someone they pulled off the street.
On our second last day here the front desk man got drunk on the job. Some guests weren't impressed but mum and I were so used to the abnormalities of the hotel by then. This really made our stay at orchid suites, I've never laughed so hard in my life.
Overall I highly reccommend this hotel and have friends who can't wait to stay here to have this experience. Do yourself a favor and only stay here.
