Tamar River Villas
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Riverside
Reviewed 31 March 2009

We arrived on a Sunday at the villas and we we shocked to see the front of the villas that looked very old - nothing like the web site photos. The reception is very small and ordinary and we were given the keys to our studio room. Opening the door we were again shocked to see the size and layout as we were expecting more room. The small kitchen area was in a discusting state the room had not been vacuumed or cleaned. We complained and they gave the room a quick vacuum and tried to clean the kitchen area. It is in need of a complete makeover as even the bathroom was old and unclean. To sit on the toilet you need to bend your knees under the washbasin and even then it was cramped. The beds were not comfortable the only plus was the outside of your door carpark. But on the weekend and some nights the restaurant got busy and when we came back most of the time our carpark was taken by the restaurant guests which makes you angry as there is no-one to tell at the reception. We tried to bake a pizza in the kitchen oven which was filthy as was the pizza pan. The smell from the oven was really awful and the oven burnt all the old layered grease on the oven walls. The villas are on a main road which is not explained on the web site and traffic noise was loud in the early morning. The main guests were workers who got up early in the morning baging car doors and were very noisy.I would be reluctant to give the villas more than one star - go somewhere else.

Our picture on our web site indicates that property is not new, so am very suprised that this was the impression they had. Our studio rooms are larger than the average motel room with many guests complementing us on their size. These are advertised as studio's and not 1 bedrooms. Our beds and floor coverings etc. have all been replaced in the last 12 months, and we are intending to finnish renovating the remainder of the bathrooms shortly. We as managers were away when guests checked in, so were unaware that the room had not been completed. At this time of year we had very high occupancy, and tourist do leave early, (no workers were in complex) so most people expect to hear noise from guests departing. We are very disappointed to read a review from guests that stayed for eight nights, as we where never aware of any problems.
