I booked to stay here 5 nights and this is how my initial introduction to my room went. The hotel staff member shows me in and tells me some basic information and that there is a safe in the room. My initial thought of the room was that it looked spacious and whilst having a dated decor the double bed looked comfy! It’s only when they leave I start to notice some key issues with my room! Firstly I’m struck by the 90s style non flat tv which is like 28 inches wide and double that in depth but it’s no biggy as I don’t really watch tv on holiday! I’ve not long got off the plane so hot and sticky and I was looking forward to a shower, as I pull my t-short over my head I’m looking directly up at the light almost directly above my bed and noticed it is dotted with a shadow of dead insects and other creatures including not so small geckos trapped in the light covering! I don’t know how no one has not cleaned it but I decide to leave it for now and just take the shower I’ve been longing for and when I go in the toilet I can’t see a space for the shower. I see the toilet and the wash basin, I actually look behind the door hoping it will materialise there before I realise......no, it can’t be, it’s above the toilet! I have never been to a place that has had a set up like this and maybe it is the height of efficiency that you can go to the toilet and clean yourself at the same time if you wish but it’s not the world I want to live in just yet! I take my interesting shower and then when I head to the bedroom I decide to close the curtains and realise.....they are burnt?! How did the curtains get burnt? Did the place set on fire and they saved the curtains and decide to repurpose them? Did a guest smoke and set fire to the curtains and not tell anyone?!? It’s clearly noticeable so I am bewildered by all I have witnessed thus far! I lastly go to try to find the safe which becomes like a game of hide and seek and when I give up and ask receptionist they tell me there is no safe in the room only their safe downstairs where I can put things! As you may tell this has not put me in a favourable light for recommending this hotel. With all seriousness the location is good, it’s close enough to walk to pub street if you want. The breakfast wasn’t great and I found the choice pretty limited. The main positives are that the rooms are big and it has decent internet that you can actually watch tv or play a game on but the cleanliness of my room was not great and whilst the price of room is considered cheap I’m convinced if you shopped around a bit more you would find better elsewhere! Maybe I just got unlucky as some other reviews say their rooms came with actual showers. Also to give credit to the hotel staff when I notified them about the dead insects in the light they did clean it two days later.
