I had read reports on this Hotel before i traveled, and the ones i read were not very favourable, but i take everything as i find it myself.
But i am sorry i will not be returning to this hotel.
Although the staff were very friendly they were very untrained, from the waitreses spilling soup to be asking what i would like to eat before i even sat down.
anytime you went to the bar for a drink there was no barman, he was usually outside chatting or smoking.
The rooms were clean but the shower rooms were very dated and tiny, you had to get dried in your room as there was no room to turn in the shower room.
When we asked at reception for some more teabags and milk for our room, we were told,- No, what you get left in your room in the morning is all you get for the day. in all the hotels i have stayed in , i have never heard this before.
All in all i am sorry to say this is a place i will not be returning to.
