Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness
The room has cob webs, small spiders and mosquitos and when first entering the air was stagnate and unpleasant. The bathroom taps were loose and the not water intermittent. We booked for three nights and only stayed for two. Can I request for a credit for the third night not used.

1/5 Terrible

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Not clean, not COVID-19 safe due to lack of wipe over. Spills and filth on electrical switches, basin microwave, table. Shower floor was mouldy and slippery. Basin (pink) still had previous clients toothpaste on the basin. Paper thin walls meant I could hear even a person yawning in the next room. Minimal natural light. Not well located for dining or other within walking distance. It would seem I had one of the rooms which has not been refurbished, but still paid the same price. Just all wrong from my perspective.

The owner was very helpful and friendly. Room was clean. However, some ferals turned up in the room next door at 10 mins to 2 in the morning and were loud and then put the tv on! Not blaming the manager/owner, just saying.
