  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Dirty room and sheets. Lots of steep stairs. Booked double bed got two twins.

we ended up being changed from a double bed room to a two single bed room, which was fine. The room was small with just a two beds and that was literally it. The worst thing about it, was I’m now covered in bed bug bites all over which is why I’ve given such a poor rating. Will not be using this hotel again and will be informing the hotel of the cleanliness of the rooms

Under Renovation

The location of Sphinx is very good. And the breakfast was acceptable and satisfying. However many amenities of an ordinary guest room and toilet are missing such as towel bars, a place to hang a jacket, a small lamp for night reading...... The hotel is under renovation and construction materials are actually blocking an exit. Yet the hotel was getting a market rate.
