I have been staying in this hotel for almost a year, every week for 3 or 4 nights.
The hotel is in a lovely location.
This hotel has no Executive Lounge. I am a Platinum member so they usually give me one drink voucher for each night.
I have stayed in many rooms in this hotel.
If you stay in a standard room, you will probably not have a good stay.
In the standard rooms, there are no complimentary bottle of water, no bathrobe or sleeper, the rooms are usually small and overlooking the courtyard, so you can only see other rooms from your window(very small window) and the rooms are very small and dark and the room layout is not very practical.
If the room is clean I would not mind if it’s small, but most of the standard rooms are very smelly, this is because of the shower curtains that are not very clean, and the towels and bed linens are usually old, stained and grey(I am sure they use to be white).
The best rooms are the ones overlooking the golf course, they are usually bigger, with big window, cleaner, not smelly and the towels are soft and nice.
This week I am in a standard room. The first room was so smelly I have asked to change, the second one was the same, but I could not bother to change one more time.
I am sure the shower curtain have never been washed there are some stains and it’s disgusting, the towels are smelly and old , the bed linens are the same, does not look clean, the carpet is so dirty, I don’t think have been vacuumed for long time.
So … in this hotel you can have a lovely stay or a terrible stay, really depends on the room and the cleanness and luck to have a nice stay …
In my opinion the hotel need to be more careful with the cleaning !
I think the housekeeping don’t clean very well the standard rooms ! And please wash the shower curtain !!!
Most of the staff in this hotel are friendly, specially Phil and the people that serve the room service are very nice !
