Absolute Shambles
The hotel was like a maze and extremely hard to navigate. The elevator was old and tiny as it could only fit a maximum of 3 people. Our room was not in the greatest condition, the light at our bed was falling off the wall, the radiator was leaking and the bed was falling apart at the sides, peeling apart. The service from the receptions staff was fine but the room cleaning service was appalling. On our first morning the cleaner came and knocked on the door which was fine but I was just out a shower so I had asked her if she could come back in 5 so I could put clothes on. She left and did not return the full day. Morning 2 and this time me and my girlfriend had not long woken up it was roughly 9:30am this time it was a different cleaner. She did not knock and ask if we required any help she had risky just barged in the door and I asked her to leave as we were not even clothed. I had reported the leaking radiator to reception and was told as it was a Sunday there was no maintenance personnel on shift but he had offered us a new room which was just across the hall. I declined as we only had 1 night left till we checked out and it was too much of a hassle to pack up to move across the hall for a few hours. Overall my stay was disappointing and I feel like I must have been overcharged for the stay I had and for the experience. I will not be using McClay’s Guest House ever again unless it is upgraded.
