    standard can be better

    Was told to pay a different amount from the booking as staff mentioned the amount on Hotel.com exclude taxes. After request to check then staff realized I was right. Ask staff to call when room is ready but second time I went back (room was ready but staff did not call) and staff was available then. Room was spacious but sofa seat was dirty. Bath tub was dirty as well. Breakfast was nice.

    Absolutely Horrid

    For an "Executive Suite", the conditions were worse than expected. Let the pictures speak for themselves. Broken wardrobe Broken mirror handle Cracked toilet seat No anti slip mat in the bath tub Utterly old and faulty power switches A cracked door with a plaster on it When you flush the toilet, it rumbles so damn loud i was afraid it would blow up. Oh, and you can hear your neighbours toilet rumbling too. The lights flicker when i turn on the showerhead. How those 2 things affect each other is way scarier than it sounds. 1 of the spare pillows smelt like cottage cheese. Do you guys not wash them after each stay?

    The sea views and large rooms are great. Parking very easy and location is away from crowds but near enough to the Malls.
