The furnishings were old, worn and in need of an upgrade eg taps, shower, chairs. One extra blanket was moth eaten & had holes in it. The wifi was not working properly. When I inquired about it I was told it worked perfectly in the reception area. The in house phone did not work & when asked I was told that it was being upgraded. Our rooms were serviced sometime after 3 in the afternoon and our linen wasn’t changed. On the whole it wasn’t a good experience.

It is a good accommodation for one night stay, like bed and shower, but that's it. However, make sure you bring your own water as they don't provide complimentary refreshments. Big disappointment on that one. Every hotel provides at least 2 bottles or a jug in the fridge. Too bad we didn't think we would be neglected. Also, you will have to use the bathroom sink for your toiletries as well because they don't have any holder in the shower area. Maybe not use the seats and couch as they are filthy and dusty, unless you don't care about it. If you have sensitive skin, probably better to use your own blanket. I felt really itchy with theirs, especially on the leg area. 😑
