2/10 Poor

Upon entering the lobby, the hotel looks decent. However, when we got to our floor, the hallway to the room was dark with a musky, moldy, cigarette smell. The room itself also had the same smell. The carpets should definitely be replaced. The bathtub was slow to drain and the water went past our ankle each time we shower. There were no comforter, just a really old thermal blanket that we had to use the sheets to cover each night. We roughed it out since only stayed for a few nights. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

8/10 Very good

Great suite, just a few niggles
Our sea view suite was wonderful, spacious, taste fully decorated, with one and a half bathrooms. The hotel itself is well located, staff friendly, and place well maintained. There were just a few niggles that meant downgraded review from 5*. When arrived only total of 2 towels in both bathrooms, and only 5 clothes hangers for the 2 of us. These were quickly remedied, but during week tea bags not always replaced, a small thing but we had bought our own coffe e and milk but relied on hotel for tea. At initial check in was great, got into room an hour early. After that problems with queues at front desk. twice gave up waiting, a third time complained when as second in queue I had waited 30 minutes by that time and guy in front of me even longer. Lady was working hard but it took 40 minutes to be served. At check in I put funds on room card so could charge room service, laundry etc. But found laundry wanted cash on delivery both times, and restaurant wanted cash for breakfast so never charged anything to room.

6/10 Good

The queue to check-in was very long with only 2 staffs working. After waiting for half an hour to check-in, I was told to wait for another 20 mins to get my room ready. As it was already more than 2 hours pass check-in time and I was in a rush, had to settle for a room that I did not book for (not an upgrade). Room is very dated, the towels really should be changed. The only good thing about this hotel is the location.
