We were on the last few days of our honeymoon and had booked this through out travel agent so had expected this to be a nice hotel, really wish I had done more research myself and read the reviews.
When we arrived we were waiting almost a half hour to check in, there was only one girl at reception for most of that time, and a big queue of people waiting. When it came to our turn we were told that there would be a charge for use of the in room safe , which wasn't much around $2.50 per day but I just thought it was a bit mean of them.
Our room was in the old tower, the outside area going to the lifts is in serious need of maintenance, the lifts are dirty and old and make noises that would sometimes make you want to take the stairs!!
The area outside our room was again dirty and in need of a makeover, the door to our room looked like it had been forced open at some stage which didn't give us much confidence in the area!
We were on our honeymoon so were extremely disappointed to find two small double beds in the room. The room itself was dated but fine it has a new flat screen tv and a microwave and fridge which is handy. The view was nice overlooking the lake but the air con is like a tractor in the corner! So noisy! Also there were two pieces of metal jutting out if the side of one if the beds which I kept catching my leg on.
My husband went to reception and explained that we would like to change to a nicer room with one big bed as we were on our honeymoon and they said they were full .
Also what annoyed me was that the reception staff had no clue when I asked them about getting tickets for the local attractions or advice on where to go. Anyway we were very disappointed with this hotel, and would never stay here again.
