Insultingly third rate hotel at 5-star prices
Posted Jan 26, 2017
From the moment you arrive, you know you're in a third rate establishment and you're on your own.
Read the negative reviews. Wish I had!
If you're exhausted but need at least 3-star hotel amenities and service, forget it. Oh, in the reviews they say if you ask, you will be given the razor, toothbrush/toothpaste, maybe even room slippers. The hotel has the feel of a railway station without the convenient stores where you can pick up essentials. The room lighting, storage and so forth need to be improved based on guest comments; at least a footlight would help. Attractive at first glance, the rooms don't work. Priority has been given to the bar. No complimentary water. It's a shakedown. Don't expect the trash bin to be emptied so avoid tossing food scraps into it.
Exhausted One, be sure to use the "Do Not Disturb" button or your nap will be interrupted by obsequious ?contract labour? inquiring in a non-Australian accent "Did someone clean your room today?"
But at least there's the pool and the steam sauna of an associated gym. Can't be all bad. The alarming cries of "Disgusting! Disgusting!" that greet you as white-robed guests flee the gym help prepare you for the worst. Assured that the pool is a no-go, you find your way to the steam sauna, open the door, and breathe in. "Revolting" best describes that experience.
But surely they can make a go of the breakfast? At least a decent cup of coffee? Forget it!
