Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
I have stayed here for 2 months during March 2020. I arrived checked in and was fine until an unregistered friend of a guest was let into the property. He was hostile and aggressive in the room so much so that he almost had his fist out. I told the management and GM that was in that night. Security and the GM I thought resolved the problem was let back into the room and was told that the other guests have been given a 2 hour suspension on the room the GM escorted me to the room and said it’s fine grab your stuff and we sorted a room out for you. As I was packing the guests in question came back into the room and started with another aggressive stance and was pushing me around and aggressively acting towards me because I was gay as that came up in conversation. I don’t have a problem with it. I then called the Police and a staff member thank god was on the floor and called the GM. They arranged a refund for my stay with push back as this was 10pm on a Saturday night with no apology was made. The GM also admitted fault when I asked how would he like it and what would he have done in situation and he said I would of felt short changed and felt more should have been done were his exact words. (Which is why I calm down) The next day the manager said it wasn’t our fault and we can’t be responsible for how people act with again no apology. I think a duty of care is placed and more should of been done in this situation and you should be aware that this is how management act.
