Property very run down. Was nearly electricuted by faulty iron. Lost power to room and was told that it will not be fixed as service tech would be too drunk to come at this time of day which was only 6.30pm. This property supplied far less than what you paid for

I waited at reception for over an hour and called them multiple times. No answer. No directions on where to obtain my keys. Nothing. Ended up booking another hotel up the road. Terrible
