Stayed 1 night in Dec 2019


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

New bed and linen & attempt to spruce up the bathroom. Poor cleaning: table sticky with lemonade and bathroom not properly cleaned. Was charged $12 for soft drinks and nuts I didn't consume. Minibar wasn't properly restocked and I was charged for it even though I have a medical condition which prevents me from having soft drinks. Demanded my money back. No staff at desk to check out although waited for 5 mins and called out repeatedly. Restaurant filled with boxes. Untidy.
