Dear Guest Thank you for your review, I am sorry and disheartened to read you did not enjoy your stay. The hotel is undergoing a full refurbishment with all superior bedrooms complete and 50% of the standard bedrooms. However we endeavour to keep all our rooms clean and maintenance free. Our laundry is supplied by an outside contract and is laundered freshly and delivered daily. I hope you will return in the future and stay in one of our newly refurbished bedrooms so we can change your opinion of us. Kind regards General Manager
