From the unsafe stairs at the front door when we arrived, we knew this was not a boutique hotel at all. From the damb and musty smell, not sure what else smell was going on in our room and the others room the young lady showed us. I asked for a defuser or something to make the room better. The young lady bought us a Dehumidifier. Our shower wasn't clean nor the bath. To the build-up grime on the shampoo and body wash dispenser. To the dented rubbish bin. Rusty clothes hamper. Drit and Flys on the window leagues. I left the blinds up so they could see and clean it. But it didn't happen. The marks on the wall where the multi plug was and the marks on the bed side unites and dusty lumps. To the bed that was hard as the floor and we would of been better sleeping on the floor. We got bites from the bed. To the front door unlocked at night time when we got back. And no one to talk to about what was going on, in the morning or evening when we got back. Called the number so many times and also email them and I still haven't heard anything from them. This was so over priced. Said one price on the website and cost us more. We wouldn't recommend this place at all.

The staff cancelled our booking due to the room needing “maintance”, failed to provide a suitable solution, and then proceeded to lie to us about the reason for the cancellation. This left us stranded for accommodation, 2 days out from our arrival with a 14 month old infant. Very poor customer service and zero sympathy. Judging by the rest of the reviews it sounds like we dodged a bullet.
