2/10 Poor

Not so good is an understatement, these guys are dirty, the rooms are a state of disrepair, bed bugs ready available when you need them , and accomodates housing new Zealand so drugs deals and domestics going on 24 hours , how they got a 3 star rating is beyond me ... Hotel.com if you keep these guys on here they should be listed as a back packers and no more. I felt unsafe the whole time. Ridiculous

Cant complain
Very central location. Cleanliness ok but very rusty rubbish bin in the toilet. The bedspread a little tinged with we dont know what. No Clear Instructions of what was expected from guest i.e. -that we have to empty bin out. Cant complain for its location and price to be honest..

4/10 Fair

The room was not overly clean, curtains looked mouldy, room smelt musty, towel rung on the bathroom door fell off, bed covers had marks on them. Was tempted to check under beds to see how dirty it was but refrained from doing so. Was difficult to contact staff for checkin. They were not there in person and everything had to be done over the phone.

2/10 Poor

Hated our accommodation. Poor service. We turned up after 4 hours travel to a closed reception. So many things went wrong. The reception area was dirty. Carpet looked as though it hasnt been vacuumed for a while. Overgrown weeds. We ended up booking another hotel. Absolutely shocking experience. Paid 300.00 in advance and even though we told Manager? We definitely gojng to another hotel, she has the audacity to take out the remaining balance a couple days later. I'm absolutely pissed and will be demanding payment back. I'm here for my daughters major heart surgery and the last thing we needed was added stress. I will be copying my complaint to other parties. Please see my previous responses to your email.

6/10 Good

The inside of the hotel is tired and musty. There is no airflow to the hallways and lobby. The reception is almost always closed and there are no open times shown at reception. There is no extraction over the shower. Due to the very limited time the reception is open, the hotel doesn’t feel safe.
