Decent stay in convenient location
Decent hotel in convenient location. Was a mild night at 14 degrees but the air conditioning had been deactivated so could not be used to cool the room, otherwise bed was comfortable and room a good size.

Liked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Room not as advertised
Firstly when I walked into the bathroom there were fruit flies everywhere. They said it was maybe from a lady next door who had vines creeping up the wall. I asked them to get rid of them while I went out. They were still there when I returned. Also hand soap dispenser was nearly empty. No miniature shower items as they said they weren't allowed to use them. I had to buy some. There was evidence of drinking chocolate on the kitchen area surface and one of the days the bin was emptied but no replacement bin liner and the bin was filthy. I barely used it. To top it all there was no capability to watch Netflix as reception said our tv didnt have it, this despite my room confirmation saying it did.

One rude staff who was letting the hotel down
Room was nice and comfy. But the phone in the room was not working, had to go to front desk to order food. Staff are really nice except one particular staff who was serving breakfast who was very rude, can’t remember her name but the one with braided hair. She basically yell at me saying she was busy serving breakfast and so she can’t do anything about the phone in the room, so rude.
