We followed the advice of visitors reviews only to be greeted by the horror of hospitality at White Mansion, sure its a great location, and its great value [means cheap- literally], but for the cheap value proposition you get exact poor product quality. Right on arrival, we had to wait and struggle with the reception staff for almost an hour, Im not kidding, almost one hour to check in on arrival as the reception staff did not speak any english and were also rude and irritated, further while struggling with the hotel staff we met another hotel guest who said they had a big fight day before at check in as the rooms that were promised to them while booking were not the same as what they were provided when they arrived...ditto happened to us as well. But this was just the beginning, the rooms were stinking- possibly due to uncleaned carpets, wall paper peeling on the walls with seepage marks, torn pillow covers, form towels and smelly bed covers....non existent wifi... the list is long.. we kept wondering- its just our luck or the great reviews we read online were about another hotel with the same name!! I came back and did a double check... its the same hotel?? So any one travelling to White Mansion be careful of what you might find in exchange for the alleged great value they offer!!! I would never recommend this hotel to any one...
