I have stayed at the Valley of Rocks many times over the past 9 years. Yes, it is in need of refurbishment (ongoing) but it has a unique charm and is in a wonderful area.
I visited with my mother on November 9th for a 3 night stay. I had asked for adjacent rooms as my mother is elderly. We were given rooms 27 and 29, both of which were refurbished in May. HOWEVER... there is no chest of drawers in room 27. When I asked if it was possible to have one, the manager (Mr Julian (Gus) Percival) became extremely rude, shouting at me in the reception area in front of my mother and other guests. There is no excuse for rudeness from any member of staff in any hotel anywhere in the world.
I will not let this unpleasant man put me off staying there again.
