We checked in late on a Friday evening and received a warm welcome off Pete who couldn't do enough for us.
Pete told us our standard room had been double booked but informed us we had been allocated a superior room instead! Don't know what is superior about two single beds being pushed together. The room was chintzy and and a throw back from the 70's. We regret not packing our paisley and flares.
On inspection of the room we were horrified to find human waste splattered all over the toilet. I spent the first 20 minutes of my stay cleaning the toilet. We did not complain to Pete because he had been very nice to us and he had stayed 15 mins late to check us in and show us to our room.
The breakfast was enjoyable and the staff were once again helpful.
Sunday morning we went down for breakfast and left our room locked and secure as we had valubles in the room. We had started to pack and had left clothes and cases on the bed but were startled to find someone had been into the room and open the balcony door wide open. The bed had been made and our new clothes that we had bought over the weekend had just thrown all over the floor by the maid.
Check out was not until 12pm and we felt as though we were being pushed out.
My partner went down to raise this matter and was told sorry by the lady on reception. She did not seem bothered to here of the dirty bathroom and the fact someone had thrown our clothes all over the floor. She commented here is your bill.
