“Never Again!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

There was a leak in our bathroom. Went to the front desk to get more towels to soak up the water and told them the problem. Nothing was said. The leak got worse and tried to call the front desk using the phone in the room. Guess what? The phone did not work. Not sure if our sheets were fresh or not. Noticed that the fitted sheet was turned inside out. The non-slip shower floor mat was so filthy that we did not want to shower. When I returned our room key I tried to tell the manager and she all the sudden took a call and just nodded her head and said "Ok" you're good to go.

The T.V. had poor reception and T.V. was very old. The telephone message light could not be turned off and was told to put a towel over it. The toilet paper holder was broken.

Sometimes it's better to pay more! Given room number and made our way to the room on ground floor (401) - passed a rat sitting on a rubbish bin from the nearby resturant who quickly jumped off and away! Opened the door and greeted by reasonably clean room though carpet probably did not see a vacume cleaner before our visit as still white bits (someones sock bits?) were around the bed on the carpet.

However, the terrible smell of what could have been a whole can of cheap and very nasty air freshener spray hit me for six on entry. We were off out in a hour and returning late so went for a dip in the cleanish but unheated pool for a few mins and soaked up some rays afterwards.

The smell had not gone on return from the pool dip so hoped it would on our final return later that evening...and also hoped the thumping on the ceiling by kids in the room above would be gone on our return...it didn't, the thumping continued til'around 11.45pm...and the smell stayed and could be tasted with every breath during the night. After 30 mins of trying to get online with their free internet wi-fi access I gave up.

A pillow short and no face cloths...checking out couldnot come quick enough! Never again will I book a Ramada!!

PS: The breakfast was ok, small but enough to help you on your way.

Room Tip: Pay that little more and find somewhere else-honestly it will be worth it!

No kerb appeal, not a good start - weeds growing through the concrete. Room was clean and smelt very nice. Shame about the surly and unhelpful attitude of the front desk/owner manager. I came to breakfast 5 mins before it finished but all had been cleared away, never to be offered. The young man doing the evening shift was great, recommending a local restaurant and offering me his own adaptor to charge my iPad. Wi-fi in the room went down intermittently, it was reported but nothing done, bedside light had bulb out and the computer in reception didn't work. I would never come back, not a nice experience.
