Great location but needs more renovation
Posted Jul 29, 2013
The staff did all they could to make me welcome and to try and resolve issues as they occurred. I moved to three rooms during my stay and one was excellent, newly renovated (except for a broken jacuzzi) and comfortable but without wi-fi. The common areas however are showing their age and given the price of the rooms, needs renovation to ensure value for money paid. Several deficiencies in the rooms need to be considered to reach the standard of the price for the rooms: a) no telephone in the room and for a foreigner without a cell phone this makes life difficult; b) wi-fi needs improving - it is sort of available but only with strong enough signal on the first floor so if guests need e-mail or streaming services, forget most of the rooms (manager trying to resolve this); c) common areas need renovation e.g. tables in the front sitting area are extremely shabby, but this is a prime space for relaxing.
