    • Disliked: Staff & service

    Due to the Covid-19 pandemic I was not even allowed to walk into the hotel. I was told only essential workers were allowed and I had on my scrubs! However, they allowed me to complete my booking they took my money. The receptionist was rude, uncaring and nonchalant about the entire situation. Even once all this is over I won't be booking with them ever again and I may not book with Expedia either!
