Spent Labour Day weekend here for one night in what was advertised as 'Newly refurbished' Hotel rooms. The bathroom is like something from the 80's - edges in bathroom were filthy and dusty, possbly even some builders dirt! We were in room no. 18 not sure what the other rooms were like though but this was certainly not refurbed! The toilet wasnt even clean porperly with a 'speck' of someone elses poo in it! They went through the trouble of neatly folding about 3 sheets of toilet paper on the roll in there to a point as they do at posh hotels - with the new roll just let on top of the toilet!
The Light switches were grubby and had like a red mark on - assuming from a bloody finger - one wipe by me took this away!
So after i decided it was for one night and we paid half the price and we were more there for sightseeing I discovered the worst part later that night.
The bed cover was like a brown colour and in the evening light had like yellowish stains on. I decided to take off the cover, and then the inside had a blood stain on it! When lifting open the sheets the were 2 rather conspicuous looking hairs on it (probably someone elses pube!
This place was mortifying and even though the owner was so nice I was almost embarrassed to say anything. Also since we were on holiday and travelling light you'd expect that when you book into a 'hotel' that you'd at least get shampoo or shower gels when asking we said they only gave you soap which was the tiniest bar of handsoap ever! Also many people booking in after us around 3pm were waiting around for their rooms which still hadn't been cleaned! and check in was meant to be 2pm. This place is mortifyingly filthy! Do not go here - it is old, dirty, grotty and revoloting - The camp site seems like it would have been a better option. There was even a dead fly on arrival on the head board and the bedside cabinets were thick with dust clearly not wiped in a while! Also the pool wasnt even clean - lots of sand at the bottom. And since arrival or checking out it was never cleaned by anyone! added pics as proof!!!!
