    • Disliked: Staff & service

    This property is located just next to a subway And it’s quite clean . The worst experience i had was with a female staff whose name is Joesie who is so terrible, Rude , so uneducated and may be to extend very racist . I wish you guys could watch the cameras on 29/12/2019 and see her reaction she was behaving and raising her voice to me just because i ask the TV remote . She said “ don’t ask me check it there i don’t know “ and when i ask her why she was talking to me in that manner she keeps talking to her self and walk away i was shocked by her actions and another customer who was there and saw the incident told me to just calm and forget about her and that she isn’t a good person, He said she id hostile to customers seems its her family family business. I thought this good for nothing woman had some psychological problems or maybe suffering from cerebral malaria . Apart of this woman all other are so professional . When i was leaving i reported the incident to another staff who told me to report it through an email because it’s unacceptable. Advice: Joesie need to either visit a Psychiatrist hospital for check up who knows something might be wrong with her or second option she might need to go Back to school because she is so terrible.

    Stayed 6 nights in Dec 2019
