garden rooms not at all like website. small,dark,noisy and pokey. we asked to be moved and they put us in a room little did we know it at the time which was worse and with a window opening into the dining room! no privacy or natural light and people were traipsing up and down squeaky stairs/floorboards all evening. big gap under door so you you could hear every word from 06.30 along with breakfast clatter.
The staff couldnt seem to care less and made us feel we were being unreasonable for pointing out firstly when maids left our ground floor room unlocked after cleaning it and then when our bathroom ceiling around the light bulb was leaking. apparently it was the air con but they only suggested we just didnt use it not fix it so it continued to drip for 2 nights. no apologies given at all. we were hugely disappointed although perfect walking distance to mosques and palace i would not reccomend this place unless you can afford to pay for a deluxe room butthey did not offer to let us look at one. we would not have stayed if we hadn't already paid up front.
