6/10 Good

Dirtiest hotel room we've stayed in.
The hotel's lobby and restaurant areas certainly qualify for 4 star rating as well as the good breakfast buffet. And that's as far as it goes. Go up to the accommodation, and it's another world. Everything about the description of their rooms is false. The room we got, in my view, looked like the photos you see in a 2 star hotel room. It was about 30-40 years out of date. The worn-out carpet was filthy, especially along the edge of the whole room. The bathroom sink was grubby, and I had to use an old toothbrush to clean the muck around the sink. The cheap bathroom door was old and plaster was broken around the frame. The plaster around the shower was peeling off. The toilet had to be flushed at least twice each time to make it work. The room's reading lights were badly installed, as there were bits of broken plaster around it. A standing lampshade was dirty with wiring hanging around all over the floor and the switch showing exposed wiring. This 'superior room' which I booked described the facilities as having a bidet, turndown service, DVD player and bathrobes - none of which were available! There was no guest information in the room, and we had to call several times to get a room service menu, which was old and stained. We only had two bath towels provided. I had to ask for hand towels, and on one occasion, after the room was 'cleaned' just one hand towel was in the bathroom. It took us three calls to the housekeeper, as well as asking two cleaning ladies in the hallway to
