Customer service needs improving

Overall I would say that our stay was disappointing and could easily have been improved upon. We booked due to the pool and then found upon our arrival that it was out of service. There were cobwebs in all four corners of the main bedroom, soap dispenser was not working and we had to clean up broken glass outside our door as we reported it but no-one cleaned it up. Room was not cleaned very well at all and staff's attitude not very helpful.

1 day getaway

I felt that the ceiling in the bathroom should have been cleaned. Mould on the ceiling, Spa bath cracked. Room 21 generally needs maintenance work done to it.

Won't be back!

Out dated and cold. One very small fan heater to heat the room. No extraction fan in bathroom so when you had a spar, bathroom steamed up. Puddle of water behind the toilet. Not sure if toilet was leaking or window leaked during very heavy rain storm. Complimentary coffee was undrinkable. Main light fitting had wires exposed. Could do with a paint job to bring it in to this century. The linen and towels were clean. Only one spare blanket so we got a bit cold as it was the start of winter and Hamilton was experiencing a winter blast. Sorry but this place is too budget for us so won't be back any time soon.

Excellent stay

Friendly staff, nice heated pool, great to have a late check out (11am). However I would have liked a better heater to heat up the room.

Unbelivable high overall score

The accommodation was quite dated and did not deliver. Time for cleaning, washing and renovating. Overall score 4.7 ????? Can not believe that.

cheap is not always nasty

This place is always inexpensive, always clean, always friendly and with a couple of minutes walk to town. There are a lot of more expensive hotels in this city that cannot match this place in these issues. Cheap does not have to mean nasty
