We stayed overnight with friends and chose the hotel based on the online reviews.
Great location in a pedestrianised area. Hotel car park easy to find. Surrounded by shops, bars and restaurants.
It's graded as a 3 star which I think is pushing it a bit.
Check in was easy and friendly. Hallways and stairwells very gloomy. The room itself was OK, but on the shabby side.
Advertised as having AC, it didn't work in our room or our friends.
Advertised as having free wifi, neither our friends or us could get connected and the staff were unable to assist.
Advertised as having a safe in the room, neither our friends or us could get the safes to work and the low battery light was flashing.
We had to unplug the tv to charge our phones.
The bed was small with a very soft mattress.
The bathroom was small, and very claustrophobic. It became overwhelmingly hot when taking a shower as there didn't seem to be an extractor fan.
The sink and toilet were clean. The towels were clean and toiletries were supplied.
The tile grout in the bathroom was peppered with mildew. The tile surrounds we grubby and dusty and grimy. The shower had 2 shower heads, both had lime scale problems preventing both from giving a nice shower. There's no excuse, plenty of chemicals that get rid of scale in every supermarket.
I think this place needs a bit of a deep clean and a spruce up. Bigger beds, a fresher look. New carpets and brighter bathrooms with better ventilation.
I wasn't expecting the ritz, but certainly expected the services and facilities being advertised to be available.
Great location, fair price, but seen better days.
