The first thoughts I had about this hotel centred on the film "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'! First up, all the staff we encountered throughout our overnight were excellent, very accommodating and friendly albeit with limited English. Emails to the hotel checking out the free shuttle bus were promptly answered and the hotel rep at the airport was ready and waiting for us on our arrival, very late in the evening.
This hotel obviously caters for groups of mainland Chinese tourists, evidenced by the signs in the hotel but despite a large group arriving at the same time as us, we were checked in quickly and efficiently. For some reason, the lift opens on the level between floors, necessitating carrying the suitcases up some stairs on the ground floor and up or down from the lift to the bedrooms! The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable enough! The bathroom was poorly lit and small with an old fashioned shower and hot water to our sink could only be obtained by using the shower fitting! On the plus side, if anyone had forgotten any toiletries, everything necessary was on offer for sale in the room, including a selection of coloureds condoms to suit every taste!
Breakfasts as a unique experience! This was the first time I had seen the heaters under the food turned on as we entered a hotel dining room for breakfast. However, this warned me to stay away from the meat products and it would have taken a miracle to warm the tray of fried eggs situated directly under the air-con unit! Chinese visitors were well catered for with congee and rice dishes, albeit overly salty. For the hungry, there was ample supplies of toast, preserves, cake, hot coffee/tea. A lot was forgiven for the 'entertainment' element of our stay and because of the pleasant attention of the staff throughout. Hence, the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel connection, maybe?
For a cheap overnight stay (just over £20) to utilise the basic no frills facilities and free shuttle service at a very cheap rate, it would be hard to beat - but only if time of arrival was late and departure early! Incidentally, I do not recognise this hotel from the 'professional' photo on this site whereas those of travellers capture it well.
