Okay, first up we are not complainers. This is an honest review that we would have wished to have read before booking to stay here. We are a family of four : kids aged 8 and 11.
The room was okay, reasonably clean and had all the bits that you would want. Bingo!
On the first night, midway through the night, we switched on the bathroom light and spotted a cockroach run across the floor into a grill on the bath cavity. We reported this and the room was sprayed. Second night, coming back from a night out, the same thing. Again, we reported it. The room was sprayed again.Third night, the same again.
We asked if there was an alternative room but there was nothing suitable. We asked if we cold cancel and get a refund and find another hotel but was told there was a three day cancellation notice policy (we only had 4 more days). We thought the best idea was just to leave the light on in the bathroom all night to discourage the roaches. It did seem to work.
Then Friday night happen. Booming baseline from an adjacent bar from about 7pm to midnight. This continued on Saturday and Sunday night. Yep, I get that some people want to have a knees up. I don't want to stop people from doing that. In fact, that would have been me in there 20 years ago. But I would have preferred to have know this before we had booked.
By posting this review, I hope people make the right choice for them. If these "issues" are acceptable to you, then go for it. but if they are not, then perhaps reconsider.......
