Property conditions & facilities

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Check -in was at 4:30pm yet our rooms were not ready until almost 6pm. The general manager/owner , Laura was absolutely unconcerned, aloof and unapologetic about the situation when i mentioned it to her. Keycards constantly didnt work. Breakfast was only readily available on the first day because they were guests staying at one of the cottages. When they checked out, it appeared that the rest of us guests staying in what they call "mini or junior suites" (which is quite deceiving as these room are so small and no sitting area, simply 2 rooms with an adjoining door) there was no breakfast unless you went hunting for a hotel staff to scrunch together a couple muffins and coffee. The hotel manager only appears to care about guests who stay in the overpriced bungalows and cottages. If you stay in a regular room she has the most demeaning/ cold attitude. There was constant banging of doors and what appeared to be the sound of moving of furniture while we were in our rooms. Thankfully we didnt spend alot of time in our room. i received an email from the Palms asking for feedback which i sent weeks ago and never received a reply or apology for the myriad of issues that were problematic during our 4 day stay (wifi didnt work, shower in my mum's room didnt work on the first day, key card issue almost everyday). Unfortunately the GM is also the owner so there is no recourse in addressing her lack of ability to make EVERYONE staying at the hotel feel appreciated and welcomed.
