Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
When we checked in they requested our debit card to take a $100 security deposit. The card declined despite having ample funds to cover. The receptionist wouldn’t try again and then told us we couldn’t stay there despite having paid in full, and that we could not do a cash deposit. He then claimed our booking would clearly state that it had to be a credit card. When we came back 5 minutes later and insisted he try again it worked straight away. The way he spoke to us was frankly terrible. Room was ok. Dated, and the mattress could definitely do with being replaced. We noticed in the morning both sides of the pillowcase were black with dirt.
