When we arrived at the hotel there was no one on reception; another guest told us to try the restaurant. We waited there for ages before having to knock on the kitchen door to get any attention. Although we were then given our room keys the service could not have been more surly. When we went to the restaurant for dinner we discovered there was only two staff members in the entire hotel and one of them was the chef! The room was quite clean although when I got up for our very early flight there was an earwig and silverfish in the bathroom! Also there are no hairdriers in the room. We were supposed to get a packed breakfast which didn't materialise as we were leaving too early for the buffet brekkie.
I guess it was okay for one night and fairly cheap when you take into account we left our car for the duration, however for service it was pretty terrible. Very handy for the airport and the night porter took us over for our flight.
