We stayed here overnight due to a relative's wedding being held close by. My brother walked in and saw his room and walked straight back out and went somewhere else that should tell you something. If it werent for the money and lack of availability at other places we would have followed him. We were greeted by 2 very scruffily dressed and unclean looking men who did not seem to know what they were doing considering they first led us to the wrong room. The men also smelled of body odour. The guest house also smelled of body odour and of general staleness. The men were not very welcoming and their attitudes not particularly pleasant which made me think they were in the wrong job.
The floor was very creaky and the place was poorly lit. The decor consisted of very shabby, seriously outdated and mismatched furnishings. The wallpaper was comming off the walls in places and there were cracks in the walls and ceilings that had been messily filled in... some of them anyway. The toilet and shower area was very small and again shabby looking and the shower did not work properly.
My bedroom consisted of shabby, worn and mismatched furniture. The curtains wouldnt close and nearly came off the rail when i did try and close them. My bedroom sink consisted of taps that were that loose they nearly came off in my hands. The bed was uncomfortable and lumpy. i could feel the springs going mad whenever i moved on it. There was an opportunity to make myself a drink in the room but it tasted too stale and the milk was off.
Breakfast was no better. The chef looked like he hadnt seen soap or water in a long time along with his clothes. The breakfast was help yourself to what had been put out and the option of a cooked breakfast. I stuck to a glass of orange juice as the milk was not very fresh again and from what i glimpsed of the kitchen i thought it the safer option.
Myself and the others i was with couldnt get out there fast enough and if anyone says they would go there again then they are quite mad and obviously dont care about cleanliness or hygiene as it is a dismal place with poor facilities. Trust me i would not recommend this place at all and if u do stay there then i wish u the best of luck as i am sure u will need it.
