Once was more than enough!

Disinterested staff. Faulty airconditioner that was never fixed. Room not made up one day when I got back at three. Tiny rooms. Their offer of "Free Wifi" is limited daily. Tired, stuffy hotel. Why stay there and pay so much when there are so many other hotels on offer.?

Ruin the mood, not even 3 star

Paid soo much for 4 star but the hotel rooms, facilities are just or close to 3 star. One of the worst experiences as the staff performance ruin the mood. Booked the car 2 days earlier from travel desk, the person didn't have a clue on the day suppose to receive it. Complained to manager on duty, she listened as a courtesy and just walked away. Finally had to rush to Avis to get a car. Ordered airport taxi a day earlier than check out. When reached lobby and inquired, she replied casually "taxi will be here if u have ordered". Waited 15 minutes and asked again and finally she come to know taxi is waiting for 25 minutes already. Very layed back, care free and disappointing performance from staff. I will never stay there again.

I am waiting to hear back from the hotel as they insist we have not paid for both the stay we upheld and a cancelled stay. I have sent them the confirmations you have sent but they are basically completely confused and have no idea what's going on! Our room was a tiny twin, a considering we booked a double/twin and it was new years eve this was rather disappointing. The cooked breakfast was of poor quality (cereals etc were better) and the outside area was so small that only one sunbed at a time could be in the sun!
