Room was dirty with dust in most places. TV had what looked to be hand prints on it with a white dusty substance. Hairs found in the shower.

8/10 Very good

We loved the room and house it was in. We asked to use a microwave to pop popcorn and were told no. We also needed to store a couple bags for two hours after checkout. We were told this would be okay but then no one came to the door when we rang. We were traveling from overseas so this caused a problem in our sightseeing plans. It was a lot of money to pay to not get exceptional service.

Its too old and unkept, everything from chair to bathroom to bed/linens all so old and tatty. I was disgusted with the room couldn't eat in there, puts me off my food, not that that cheap either for such condition.

Property is very basic, bathroom could have done with some TLC, shelves not level (stuff falls off once tap is turned on) Ideal for a couple of nights stay.

2/10 Poor

Rude staff, dirty rooms.
Unfortunately this property was sub par, with rude staff and dirty rooms. The room we were put in had mold in the shower, peeling paint and a hole in the ceiling. I did contact the hitel to advise but was told none of what I said was true, despite me having pictures. Avoid if you can.

Room and hotel outdated and old
The room and the hotel itself was outdated and old. Wooden floors made it noisy when you move around the room it creaks. Even the shower room looks old and the shower head can’t be moved makes it hard to maneouvre around when you shower. The guset house is a bit far from the coty centre around 20-30 mins walk.
