I had previously had a friend stay last year at ark bar and had seen that there ahower and toilot where almost upon one another... not that great for a girl! So when we booked for this yearwe chose the most eexpensive room as there website does not show any bathroom pictures.... troubles started as soon as I arrived. They didnt have my booking on there system when I had paper work to show I had. They made me wait and kept telling me to sit down for over an hour before any paper work was given to me to fill in. I thank went to pay for the hotel and the deposit and my chip wouldnt work and I insitted they can manually put my card number in (I have the same efpos terminal at my work -_-) they kept saying no I have to go withdraw money to pay them. So over all chrck in took around 2 hours. It wouldnt bother me so much if the recption staff wherent chatting away and mucking around on there phone instead of helpping me. Got to the room. Tons of mozzies as there is practically a forest out the front! Bring mozzie spray and coils! Bath room was not impressive either. There was much more room in the bath room but it is a open shower so when you shower the whole bathroom floor gets wet and takes over night for it to dry. I had a great time here apart from dealing with the recption staff, meet new people partying! There where ALOT of familys and older couple here though which if I had a family I deffinatly would not stay there. .. tons of young drunk adults with music blasting into all hours of the night. This is the place I was most excited for and was a let down.
