The staff were excellent. Two couple arrived on motorbikes having travelled in the wet an dcold.....I had made the booking and paid on the internet. However I had mistakenly booked for the previous night and so we had to pay again. The staff gave me a $20 discount on the correct night.
The postion of te hglass shelf over teh basin was very difficult to spit into the basin while washing your teeth, without banging your head.I thought it would have been better to put the shelf above the towel rail. But I was very impressed with the facilities.
Noise from the bar at night was terrible, no sound insulation to the room
NIce clean rooms, and showers and toilets. Warm!
The reception staff. Unpolite and unfriendly,only the girl who was working when we check in
when I arrive my bed had been slept in. When I went to have it made it was wet but the person said they would flip the matress and it would be ok. I was disgusted. After must debate about getting a refund from the very lax staff at the front desk who was more interested in getting muffins out of the freezer I demanded that he called the manger who upgraded us to a private room above a night club which we got no sleep in.
I enjoiyed the mostly friendly service and the relaxed atmosphere. The kitchen/bathroom facilities were excellent.
The room size was fairly inadequate, fitting 8 people into a small room with barely any floor space. There were raucous people at night, good if you want to be raucous yourself but not if you want to sleep!
