Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Food was average and one of my guests was very sick after eating the calamari. My phone and laptop was locked in the safe that they could not open for 10 hours. We'd have to call room service to remind them that we asked for towels, extra water etc. This was also during a weekend when their geyser was broken for more than 24hrs.

Review:   Decent hotel with arty rooms. Service is generally good in the hotel. There is a nice cosy bar area downstairs but service can be a little slow.

Review:   I made a reservation but arrived to find nobody had an idea about it. While I was at the front desk 2 guests seemed unhappy about something. The staff seemed incompetent and kept disappearing for 5 minutes only to return and ask about the booking. Do not go! It sux!!!
