When we arrived at this hotel, we were told at the reception desk that the money that we had paid was insufficient to warrant us a decent standard room and that we would have to accept a room with no windows instead. We later found out that this was false information as some people we met confirmed that they had paid much less for a room that actually contained windows with a proper view (a basic requirement when you stay at a hotel).
Having got over this we settled down a little but then started to have issues with one staff member in particular. This vile man kept creeping up on me when I was alone and trying to touch my arm and express his feelings towards me. I'm a straight bloke and have no issues with gay people, however, if I have clearly communicated to you what my sexual inclination is, I expect to be left alone. This didn't happen and the harassment got so bad that I considered using physical violence which I'm strongly against.
To be fair, most of the other staff were very helpful and friendly, including the reception staff and the cleaners, however this experience totally spoilt my stay here, therefore, I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone. I also wouldn't normally post such a harsh review, however, I felt a human duty to express this.
