Could have been better
Posted Aug 7, 2016 on Hotels
The Concierge has the character and charm you won't find in a regular hotel. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable and the bathrooms have quirky glass shower cubicles, but....
1. I had a room overlooking the carpark, while for the same price I could have had a room with a verandah and palm trees facing the road.
2. My room needed painting, the basin was cracked and the towels thread-bare.
3. Choose your breakfast carefully. I had a smallish bowl of sliced fruit with a blob of yoghurt. I asked for a poached egg to follow. "Oh no sir, that's two breakfasts. You'll have to pay extra!" I wasted my time by pointing out that as a single person I had to pay the bed & breakfast rate for two people, so was already paying for two breakfasts.
4. If you want pay your bill using an American Express credit card there is an extra charge for the privilege. [Is that allowed?]
It wasn't a great experience, and if I do ever go back I'll take my own towels.
