Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Service Is not as advertised. Bad experience
It was very bad experience. We stayed 3 hours waiting to check in. most of the customers checked in 1 hour before us although we came before everyone. The receptionist was so rude when I pointed out to her that we waited for too long. They advertised the room is bed and breakfast and the breakfast is included. However in reality after we arrived they said we have to pay £25 per person for it. They also advertised the hotel as 5 stars, but in their sign it was 4 stars, but in reality it is less than 1 star. The room is so small, and smelly, with badly decorated/closure design. the carpet is filthy, became bald from too much use, and with many spots. The cushions appear as they never have been washed. The bed linens was not changed, and not clean. This experience spoiled our holiday.
