      Agoda needs to validate its reviewers! No way this establishment should this receive a score of 8/10”

      I really can't decide who I am more disappointed with, Agoda, for allowing these obviously fake reviews to remain and count towards the vastly exaggerated score or the owners of the establishment for charging so much for a very poor service. Note:- Agoda, make reviewers provide some form of ID when posting a review. Maybe matching a debit/credit card against the original booking would ensure that the person posting a review has actually stayed at the establishment, rather than a spurious attempt to push up the rating by using family and friends. The issues for me were; 1. Family room - the room was barely 7 foot wide. I was with 2 friends and it was so small, we could barely walk around each other. 2. Lack of aircon/fans - had to choose between being too hot or smoke and noise from outside 3. Toilets - disgusting 4. Showers - Dirty, sodden mats and no room to move in shower. Agoda have not given enough space to write a full review - very poor.

      In the city center within walking distance to main attractions ”

      No need to take the public bus to main attractions as they are within 15 minutes walk. You can walk to the many good restaurants, and the train and bus stations for out of town travels. The couple that manage are very warm and personable. They clean the room and change the towels daily. The facilities may be outdated and could use some remodeling and updating but we manage to work around it and still feel fairly comfortable. The breakfast they serve is cooked fresh and tasty but they serve same menu everyday. I suggest to change the daily menu to have varieties. Otherwise, overall the place is safe, clean, convenient and we enjoyed our stay.

      Reviewed July 04, 2019

      Dear Ms. Theresa Short, Thank you for your message. The said menu on display is simple and straightforward so that the guest won’t stay longer reading the breakfast menu. Although we offer and suggest it as it’s too many to mention as breakfast has a lot of styles when it comes to cooking eggs. Most of them are available. We are an experienced chefs and therefore can accept orders on how they like to cook their breakfast. Breakfast is always freshly prepared. Thank You.

      Having, talked to the owner, being familiar with hotel operation, runs this and his own business. Good Breadfast, nice decoration, nice owner, 15 minutes walk from Waveley Train station, or 1-2 bus stop. You can buy a day pass directly from the driver when you get on the bus. Just beside the CAlton Hill. Shared bathroom is okay for the first time of trial, though, it's a bit small, but its okay since we are thin

      Very disappointing ”

      "Shared" bathroom /toilet was one toilet between at least five rooms , you could smell the toilet the minute you walked through the front door - rooms over cluttered and smelly , a lot of street noise - your site said there was parking - "parking" consisted of having to park on a very busy street and use the pay and display - I found this misleading - wouldn't recommend at all - we didn't stay our second night - just found a new hotel.
