Rude hotel manager

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

I stayed on 27 Jan, excellent location, friendly and efficient services from staffs of front desk and restaurant, and very nice that my room was upgraded. I have some changed on trip plan, and I extended one night to stay on 28Jan, front desk told me that I am ok to stay in the same room, so I confirm reservation and made payment on 27Jan evening. I went out on 28Jan morning, and received called from a lady hotel manager that want me to changed room, very rude from her talk, saying hotel has the right to decide my room, and her front desk team was too young that wrong to tell me to stay same room. I rushed back to hotel at about 2pm, hotel manager was not in, understand from front desk staffs that hotel has customer with wheelchair, need to use my room as is most convenient for movement. I requested to cancel my room for 28Jan's stay, however they cannot refund, front desk staffs are polite and patient, finally arrange an appropriate room for me. I indeed had good experience of my 2 nights stay, but is badly damaged by the call from the rude hotel manager.

Nice view, but the quality of the staff needs to be improved

Great facilities and views in the room. However, the room was not cleaned when we arrived at the hotel, so we had to accept check-in without a room key. Later, when we went back to the counter to get our room key, the counter staff were clueless about everything. We have to explain again. To top it all off we found out our room hadn't been fully cleaned. Therefore, I had to call the counter to get someone to clean it.

Staffing a concern

View and room were beautiful however staff didn't really know what they were doing and restaurant had to stagger times

Nice enough stay

Had a lovely view but was disappointed that it was partially blocked by new buildings with ugly signs and lots of gravel paths/roads in front. Understand this is due to a lot of expansion so not the hotels fault
