Willow the Whisp.

Quick check in. Got to room and the toilet had not been cleaned and was filthy from the previous guest. I asked the receptionist for some flash and bleach so I could clean it. The room itself "1" is large and airey. It is next to reception and the front door which can be noisy as you can hear guests checking in and door closing. The next day the room was not serviced at all. Bed not made, toilet roll not replaced, no tea or coffee or milk. Asked at reception and was told you didn't ask for the room to be serviced ...... hmmm . I would have asked if someone was on reception but no one was about between 10am and 11 when we went out for the day.

Nice, but some misinformation

Firstly, although it doesn't cost much more it is NOT worth paying for an ocean view. The Willows front doesn't even face the water. Also, the website said there is no traditional front desk so you need to call in advance to get in. That is not true. There is someone working at a front desk during normal hours. Just ring the bell at the door. Overall, we enjoyed our two-night stay. It is in a great location, easy to access with code & room key. Our room was perfectly efficient and clean. My only gripe would be the lack of reading lamps in our room.

Looks can be deceptive

Good location for my needs. Hallway and stairs very nicely decorated. Bedroom no.10 nicely decorated too. BUT.....toilet seat broken, no plug for the sink, mattress sunken and uncomfortable, wireless internet connection extremely weak bordering on useless. Not possible to rate service as you let yourself in with a code but that day's cleaner should have noticed the broken toilet seat and lack of a plug for the sink.
