Sad face IconDisliked: Staff & service
This property was not accommodating at all. I stayed there three weeks ago and it was fine. I had a guest come stay and they took a copy of their ID and all was good. This time, the same guest came to stay and they refused to let them to the room. I don't know why they randomly make up different rules. I will not EVER stay there again.
