I am always loathed to write a poor review of someone's business yet this sometimes has to be done.
The good thing is the hotel was clean. That's about it.
We had booked in January for a party in a nearby village in April. When we arrived we were shown a tiny room - it was the last one in the hotel. We later discovered others who had booked after us were shown this room and refused it. Rooms were allocated on a first come first serve basis rather than on the dates bookings were received. The others rooms were three times the size. We took the room because we were stuck in a strange village without a car and didn't want to inconvenience anyone - very English I guess.
On a safety note the hotel doors would not have been much use in a fire.
Even the receptionist was apologetic - then why do it!! For the price of 87 euros it was a joke - it was the same rate for all the rooms irrespective of the size. IT WAS SIMPLY GREEDY!
The breakfast was served in a dark, chilly dining room - with dog in there - and the service was terrible. Cracked plates are not quaint!!
For this price more is to expected and deserved. It is a run down, poorly managed hotel. Certainly a refuge of last resort. In the nearby village of Corsa the Matilda bed and breakfast charges 88 euros and the rooms are amazing, the breakfasts wonderful and they genuinely care about their guest having a good experience.
On check out - outs two nights became one - they refused to lower the price. I know I should have negotiated earlier but hindsight is a wonderful thing. Rarely do I get annoyed - this time I did.
Unless this hotel sorts itself out it will eventually be a place only the unsuspecting tourist will stay - others will know by reputation it is a rip off. The website is a blatant lie.
To the owners - This hotel has enormous potential. Spend the money, sort it out and it could be amazing.
Avoid at all costs until something changes here - at the moment avoid like the plague.
