Having seen this hotel on an earlier trip we decided to book it through an online booking facility. The price was cheap so we decided to take a chance for a number of nights.
The hotel is a nice distance even from Arbanassi so a car is advisable, though taxi's are cheap.
The hotel looks very impressive from the outside. There is a beautiful outdoor dining area and large BBQ areas.
The old style banquet hall is most impressive and I am sure it is a fantastic wedding location.
As we booked in we were told where our room was...upstairs along the corridor, left at the next junction.. The hotel does not have a lift. We had two heavy suitcases and although three burly guys, dressed in black and who appeared to be part of the staff or management, loitered in the lobby none of them saw fit to give us a hand with our luggage.
The room was large. A large glass shower is located in a corner of the room. Why they did not put it into the bathroom I do not know.
We looked out the window to see a yard full of rubbish and broken timber pallets. So much for the view.
That night the air con system was incapable of getting the room temperature below 25 and it was so so so noisy that we expected a train to come around the corned at any minute.
Breakfast was meager and never varied.
When we returned to the hotel or room had not been serviced and after the second night we had had enough and booked out.
The lady at the reception was very pleasant; from the photographs and posters on the walls we gathered that she was a well known singer. She accepted our complaints and we left.
It is a place that has great potential and perhaps it has improved since.
