This hotel is not the standard that the pictures depict. In the photos our room should have had a pod coffee machine (Walnut Room 8), it did NOT. The velour headboard was covered in dust and hadn’t been cleaned for months, the same with all of the shirting boards and carpet by the bedsides. None of the HD tv channels worked, the tv was that old. The shower one side had black mould. We arrived 30 minutes before check to be greeted by a rude male staff member who told us in no uncertain terms checkin was 3pm, even though the room was ready. The hotel failed to service our room and we had to locate staff for fresh towels and more toiletries. In summary avoid this hotel like the plague. Definitely not worth the star rating. We will not return.

Gorgeous boutique hotel. Lovely double shower in the bathroom, the COMFIEST bed I’ve ever had in a hotel. Easy to climate control with heating and cooling, so had a great night’s sleep.

Only downfall- we didn't have a Do Not Disturb door sign, so we were awkwardly surprised at 9am on Sunday morning when the cleaner was accessing the room.... oops!

Very disappointed overall. Bathroom was filthy, spoke to management and was told it would be cleaned and wasn’t. Had to shower with thongs on and could not walk barefoot on bathroom floor it was so dirty. Was told management I spoke to would be in touch later and no contact at all. Bed was two singles pushed together which was not the most comfortable. Disappointing considering what we paid.

Hi Kate,Thank you for taking the time to post your review.Let’s begin by correcting the details of your stay. The bathroom you a referring to has mocha travertine tiles, which have colour and texture variance in their finish. All of our bathrooms have the same travertine tiles, and are also cleaned and sanitised after each guest departs.Our housekeeping team attended at your request to ensure the bathroom floor was clean, and found no evidence of the alleged issue. Furthermore the bathroom was inspected by our management team who also found the floor to be clean.We have contacted you via email to explain this, and note your threat to post a review online and speak widely of experience. It is disappointing that you have chosen to post a misleading review on this occasion, without stating all the facts

Hotel Frangos is very convenient hotel to stay right in the centre of the town. Restaurants/bar downstairs. Would definitely stay here again. She is an old property, so do expect some creaking of the floorboards
