  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort


I had the worst experience at this place, the staff was so disappointing and dogey. I booked online for a beautiful hotel room with garden view and a balcony. Looked nice on booking.com however when I got to reception the guy drove us to outside rooms/chalet with flying bugs and he was literally kicking them off the entrance. I told him it's not the Room I booked on the internet, he said he was just doing us a favour by offering us a nicer Room. I refused then he took us to another Room which was not the best in terms of cleanliness and everything I saw online but I accepted. No garden view and balcony. I was fine with it. I then booked on Saturday on booking.com this time it was a king bed room and I had to pay for it online and I did I trust bookinng.com I use it all the time. When I got to the reception same guy says there are no rooms available but he do us a favour and find me a single room, my friend asked if it was the same price and the guy changed the story and said I actually didn't have a booking as I haven't paid, told him and showed him the confirmation and text from the bank, he had asked for a booking confirmation number which I gave him and he starts blaming the website which is a lie he then called the manager I think who was very rude and not informed as he refused to listen to me about online payment he said it's impossible, it's over an hour now of back and forth to get accommodation which I paid for. I will be sending an official complaint this was painfu

    • Disliked: Staff & service

    The hotel is perfect but had the problem with the door which we could not open every time we had to go to the reception for them to ask someone to open the door room 90. The poor service is based on the door that could not open with the key they gave us.
