                  The photos of this place is a lie. We were 5 ladies and never felts so unsafe and dirty before in a place and we travel a lot. I would not recommend this place to any one. There were cockroaches in our room, the air conditioning was stuck on 24 degrees. The bath I would not even bath my pets in. The swimming pool was dirty. parking was unsafe and we got blocked by a guy who was still sleeping in his taxi when we wanted to leave. People swimming in their lingerie. Do not book here! Wish there was an option for zero stars.

                  I was given C2 whose geyser did not work, no room telephone, broken cuboards, dark lighting and poor TV signal. was then inconvenienced by being moved to C19 after I have unpacked. C19 was far better than C2 but still, the leaking toilet cistern was noisy all night. All in all I don't think I will return to this fascility. The staff is okay but they are let down by lack of management/supervision.

                  In future the customers should reduce noise at the dinning hall during breakfast,it shows bad table manners

                  the hotel is dirty and very uncomfortable, the breakfast is displayed at night for the next morning, so unhealthy.
