We spent ages driving around in circles trying to find this little hole in the wall hotel and were then directed to a car park half a kilometre away. Not a great start. Of course we were then told that we couldn't eat in the hotel and later had to put up with some mediocre scoff in a local restaurant. However, the most interesting part of our stay was when we asked to use the so called spa facilities. Firstly the staff claimed that the spa facilities were fully booked, then they changed their mind and let us in. The spa at this establishment consists of a luke warm pool measuring about 4 by 3 metres, that you can neither swim in because it's stupidly short, nor relax in because it's far too cold. My wife, fellow guest and I wallowed around in the water and engaged in normal conversation only to be interrupted by the most extraordinary behaviour - the masseuse, who unbeknown to us was conducting a massage next door, burst in and loudly shushed us! No, "please could you keep the noise down", no "evening ladies and gents..." just a loud SSSHHH! We were amazed. I was speechless, well, not literally because we carried on communicating with one another, only to have the same thing happening, we were literally treated like annoying children. Quite amazing. We left disgruntled the following morning and even though I made a complaint there and then, nothing was done about it, not even an apology.
