  • 6.0.Good

    The bathroom and sleeping room floors were dirty upon arrival. There was smudges of toothpaste on the sticky bathroom floor. There was something gritty like sand on the sleeping room floor near the sliding glass window, next to the bed on that side of the room and under the small sitting table. When this was reported to the front desk the response was “the room was cleaned and we don’t have any housekeepers here now”. We had not yet unpacked and were concerned that the room and bathroom were not clean. Finally, the gentleman at the front desk came with a wet mop to clean the bathroom floor and then when O showed him the loose gritty stuff on the room floor, he returned with a dust room to sweep the room. At the restaurant we ate dinner and my husband ordered dessert and told the waitress that it was my birthday. She brought us the dessert but did not say happy birthday when she put it on our table. Perhaps she forgot or didn’t understand what my husband said to her. While the view from our table was nice enough, we were not offered a table by the deck, even though there was one and the restaurant only had 2 other tables occupied during our dinner. It would have been nicer to have been given a table by the deck view and been told happy birthday.

    Not nice

    Very disapointed upon our arrival at the hotel we were advised at reception that our room was not ready yet and could we wait a little while longer for it to be cleaned.this we did and finally we got our room we put our bag in the room and decided to go and have a stroll around town. After having something to eat we returned to the hotel to relax my husband decided to use the toilet and when he lifted the toilet seat found dried blood on the underside of the seat. So it was quite obvious the room had not been cleaned properly i then went to reception and showed the night manager pictures of the toilet seat which she then downloaded to her phone saying she was going to forward them to head office. Then she herself came to clean the toilet and when she saw the stains she said they looked as if they had been there for a few days. She offered to move us to another room but we were very tired and had already settled in so we declined her offer.
