This hotel has a lovely location and beautiful surrounding gardens. But, they have NO sign what so ever that indicates where reception is. When you go up the hill following the signs to the hotel there are many ways to go. We saw one building that looked like a restaurant but nothing for reception. Went into what we thought was the restaurant and sure enough there was a desk. I said was this reception and the girl behind the counter said, "Well I am at this desk aren't I ?" I thought that was a rather rude way of greeting potential customers.
Got checked in and inquired after the wifi, you get half an hour of free use which has to be used all at once. If you purchase more it is only $6 an hour but you also have to use that all in one go.
We had the breakfast the next morning, but I would not bother there are places in town with great looking breakfast you can buy for only $10. When we checked out the original person was not there and I mentioned how much easier it would be for people to see a reception sign, At least he agreed but I doubt anything will come of it. there are certainly many spots to put one . on the door for instance or on one of the post entering the parking area.
The room itself was ok, but the shower was a cheap plastic joke, unless you held on to it and showered with one hand.
I am glad we were only there for the one night. It is quite a ways into the centre of town, at least for walking when it is freezing cold and windy out, but there are buses.
they also say they have a free shuttle but when I inquired about a ride to the airport the next morning the girl behind the desk said they did not offer a shuttle. Which meant we had to keep the rental car until the next morning and get a ride to the airport from the car rental place.
