The room was not clean, the furniture was threadbare, the carpet was stained. The bathroom door had been kicked in. We asked to see a different room and got a peek at one that was worse. It was a hot day, but we couldn't open the door to the balcony because the stench was terrible - reminded me of the beach where we accidentally parked next to a decaying possum. The person at reception was completely unsympathetic and made lame excuses about not enough time to renovate the rooms. We knew it was pointless to ask for our money back and left for a better place.
re: chetercity, we were in room 418 until we left
Too bad there was no way to give a zero rating!!
