We booked 2 rooms but they booked us on different floors the reception managed to place us on same floor but right next to the fans out side that kept us awake all night and then no hot water for 2 night they said they was waiting for a repair man . The breakfast was miserable an they tried to say the government would only allow them to serve up the very dry bread with no butter The night staff were rude and very unhappy that we had brought a pizza in to eat and said u better not make a mess in there its all been cleaned for the morning , i kindly reminded him that 1 the rooms are far to small to eat as a family in and no hot water to clean to say the least , It was advertised as a hotel but was told when we arrived its a bnb but sorry it was not even that there was no one to comlpain to as the staff where rather rude or just did not care
