“BAD! Will never go there again”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

We got the friday evening, not enough beds in the room, I was told the the guy or boy that was working friday evening, that he was not going to waste time with that. He took me on about the money which was not my fault. The window handle was broken and we couldn't close the window. We had to wait for about 20 minutes for warm water and it still wasn't warm. The floor around the toilet was full of water. I was aked what time do I have to leave the next morning and I said no later than quater past 8 and I was told that breakfast only started at half past 7, we walked in the breakfast area half past 7 and at quater past 8 the first plate arrived and I was told that he decided to give us a half portion instead of what I asked for. I had to leave and was late already and I was told to wait another 5 minutes, the food we received wasn't correct and I was told that there wasn't enough food and if I had a problem to speak to the owner.

That was the worst place I ever stayed at and will never recommend it to anyone. We all left with out eating that morning and was late as well.

Small bedroom, the bedroom windows opens on the covert reception area, with noise from the television which is located in that area. Plus is the bathroom with has a mixer in the shower and on the basin. No real a la carte menu in the evening as web-site suggest.
Only 2 choices of meat, sirloin or shank.
Breakfast not presented as shown in the breakfast menu. No one to welcome you at breakfast. Had to find staff ourselves. With the serving of tea much is spoil on the table cloth. Nothing is done or said about it.
Next time when we are in the area. we look for something else.
