I arrived at Mountain Manor for check in. The receptionist was clearly a temp staff member and while she was friendly clearly had little enthusiasm for the place. My room had a well-worn carpet with stains in it that had not washed out particularly well. Of the two fans, only one worked. One of the bedside lamps also did not work. All the electrical appliances in the room were wired to one plug behind the beds. I had to pull the one bed away from the wall so I could plug in my cell phone to charge it. I could only charge either my cell phone or my laptop as their is an insufficient number of plugs in the room. The bathroom while clean lacked the basic amenities. One cake of soap which you had to move around from the basin, to the shower, to the bath and one sachet of shampoo which offered barely enough if you have a full head of hair. The breakfast menu that was presented to us was limited. On walking past the kitchen, I got a noseful of dreadful smells - hardly an encouragement. The parking facilities are virtually non-existent - a small lane alongside the building that cannot be easily navigated in a large car. Considering the offering the rate I was charged was exorbitant. There are plenty of places that offer much better facilities and amenities for the price.
