The best part about this hotel is the location. The rooms need some renovation. My room had some mold on the ceiling in the bathroom and near the windows. The beds were comfier than the pillows. They didn't stock our room up enough toilet paper and I had to flag down the cleaning staff to get more. In addition, the shower water took about 5+ minutes to become warm. Cucina Restaurant downstairs was nice as well and it was nice that they gave us a 25% discount. Great choice for location if you're trying to save some money. Not ideal for upscale hotel amenities and rooms.

When we arrived the system was down so no one could check in... One would think guests would be offered a complementary drink or similar but no. Just advised to wait in lounge area. We know it wasn't their fault but staff standing around smiling and having a giggle didn't sit well. We waited over an hour when we accidentally found out that they were able to check in again. No communication, no apology. When my partner raised concerns about all these later with Benjy (Duty Manager?) He could not have been less interested. Room was fine, location is good. We stayed the one night only and at 9.30 am on the Sunday were disturbed by housekeeping knocking on the door. Check out was at 11 am. Expected better. Poor customer service overall but I have the feeling they really don't care as they can fill the hotel due to its location. We won't be back though. 18 December. I have emailed you as requested .
