6/10 Good

The website states invalid and incorrect information regarding Cable TV access, there is none so this should be updated across every website promoting the Hotel. When staff questioned the response was ‘we can refund you and you can move onto another Hotel’ I found this quite rude, considering we were there for 12 nights. The lass didn’t give a hoot. First she said there was cable when I stated ours wasn’t working, she then sent a maintenance person up to look at it , only for him to state there had been no cable for nearly 2 years, if this is the case stop including in your list of what the rooms obtain. It was more about the staff attitude. No real instructions in rooms regarding rubbish collection, or house keeping, can smoke on balcony but no ash trays provided. Very lazy attitude I felt over all.
