Quirky interior design, retro charm, some flaws
Posted Feb 10, 2015
On arrival, we were told that we only booked 2 singles instead of 1 single 1 double. After this being resolved, we were given our rooms. Within minutes, our friend reported dirty towels, leftover pizza etc in his room. Obviously miscommunication between housekeeping and front desk. He was given another room...a smaller one than the original one. I would have assumed that an upgrade would have been in order rather than a downgrade? Our room was pleasant, and clean, assuming that the stains on the carpet were old and attempts to remove them had been made at some point in the past. Main positive was the balcony, which, as smokers was much appreciated. The springs in the mattress were a bit to close to the surface and my back did not thank me for it. Why a toilet seat would be horse shoe shaped, with a straight back is utterly beyond me. I have seem many posteriors in my life, none of them was square at the back.. The internet was a bit hit and miss, but it did work once or twice.
I was rather appalled by the bottle of complimentary water at the reception having something looking akin to mucus floating in it, as well as the rather lacklustre apology from the staff about it.
