The review applies to July 2010. High season - everything else was fully booked. When we arrived, there was no sign of our booking, but a room materalized anyway when we paid our stay in full to get the suspicious expression off the manager's face. Then we were given a lecture on what not to do in the room, including cooking and laundry, as if that would be the normal behaviour for hotel guests ... We were treated like shifty blackguards until we decided to sign in with another title than Mr and Mrs, which changed the behaviour to creepily subservient.
The place was worn, difficult to keep clean, TV reception poor, breakfast sparse and unfresh, etc. The list could be longer. Two days in a row we had to ask for a second towel, as housekeeping had decided that only one person was living in the room. This was a place where we just slept. It was not a place to relax and 'stay' in.
In summary, this is not good value for your money. We travel a lot and this is the worst place ever. Keep away.
