We booked for two nights at the Occidental and it was a very strange experience. The room was cluttered, one of the lamps was too dangerous to switch on and the basin was cracked. The whole place creaks, the floorboards, the bed. There were non guests wandering about all the time, rooms not let are left open for them to view! The restaurant was disappointing, we booked for 8pm but where told to come back in 20mins as they where running behind. The service was slow and chaotic, a lot a running about but nothing happening! They even started to vacuum before we finished our meal. When we discovered that the restaurant is closed on Sunday nights (Not that this is covered in their advertising) and after a very un-comfortable night we decided to cut our loses and move on rather than stay a further night. When we left the charming receptionist did have the good grace not to charge us for the second night, although come the think of it she was surprised we had booked for 2 nights! Finally when we asked about breakfast we were told that they were not serving that day due to a private party. Glad to get out!
