For a booking of on week duration, our room had no internet connection for more than two days, despite repeated requests to the front desk. We were presented with responses such as "the service provider " has checked and it is fine, but would not follow a device working at the front desk to our room to see the lack of performance. I solved the problem with the internet provider through a one hour phone and IT connection check. When I suggested 2 days lack of internet compensation at checkout, I was told that internet is free (= no value)....so if we were given a room without a bed??

Thank you very much for your review! I am sorry to hear that you had an internet during your stay with us. This is very odd and has not happened since we upgraded our Wifi to fiber optic cabling with access points in each guest room. Our service provider is able to check on internet connectivity and whether or not the access point is functioning on a remote basis so it is possible that they checked and found no issue without coming out to the property. The response to your inquiry about compensation for no internet is surprising, but it may have to do with how you booked since we cannot alter or discount rates with reservations made through third party sites. If this was the case, however, it should have been explained to you rather than brushed off. Just because something is included in the price of a stay does not mean it holds no value.
