Rooms were unclean, they were unprepared for our stay. Kitchen dirty, equipment not working properly. Unfriendly manager, cold rooms - no preparation despite knowing we would be staying with 3 young children. Office rarely open. Do not recommend staying here at all.

I gave it such a bad rating for friendliness because of one staff member who ruined our experience. We had to catch a bus to the next place early in the morning and could not finish our breakfast quickly enough so I wrapped the remains in a paper towel to eat later. She immediately accused us of stealing and did not listen when I tried to explain the situation (we were in a rush and did not want to waste food). She kept demanding that we catch a later bus or pay extra. Rudest staff member ever!
