The title says it all!
Upon arrival it isn't clear as to where you are ment to go to check in. Our host was pleasant and the food was good quality and reasonably priced (this was included in the room fee), this is where the good stuff ends.
We looked around town for a while then returned to the hotel for a nap only to be jolted awake by the horrible karaoke coming from downstairs. We were placed in a room on the street front (#8) with a large window that banged due to the wind, add to that the bright street light, vehicle noise and light coming through the window (above the door) from the hallway light and you already had the makings of an uncomfortable night without adding the noise from downstairs in to the mix.
The guy doing most of the singing (or should I say torture) seemed determined to pick the most mundane songs imaginable and certainly didn't have the voice to carry it off. Add to that the woman who decided to treat us to her reindition of 'Highway To Hell', this sounded like some nightmarish American Idol audition, but wait there was more...next came the kitchen hand who was invited up to give another song the bash. There is a reason he works in the kitchen and after hearing him sing he should stay there!
After trying to sleep in the car (which wasn't working) we packed it in and drove home throughly disappointed in our short stay at Turkey Red.
Suggestion, if you choose to stay at Turkey Red don't stay in rooms #7 or #8, they are street front and get all of the road noise plus the light from the street lamps. Make sure that they are definately not doing karaoke on the night you stay.
