It could have been better

It was clean & the bed was firm the way I like it .
The communication between you & the place itself . They didn't know about my arrival .

Bed was comfy. Close to airport Thats all!!
Extremely dodgy area. Was limited car park places. Breakfast only started at 8am and we were gone by 7am. Not a 4 * maybe a 1* if even. Def not worth the money and def not up to standard. Very noisy at night and dodgy area.

Lousy, Lousy

MY DISLIKES: I will never ever book at this place again. Absolutely no sleep for the 2 nights I stayed there. This facility is in a very bad and noise area of PE. All night drinking, singing and shouting happens on the pavement of the street and opposite where this BnB is situated. I real felt very unsafe at this place.

Simple, clean, good and affordable

Comfy bed, good wi-fi
Our reservation was ignored - they appear to have double booked the rooms, and only after insisting, and persuading, we managed to get the room that was promised to another group. Not sure what happened to the other guys eventually... To be fair, the reservation was done same day; but still, around morning hours, and we got confirmation.

A satisfactory short notice booking but lacked tea and coffee, and shower facility on arrival.

The room was comfortable with air conditioning. The receptionist on our arrival was welcoming and helpful.
No tea or coffee making facilities in the room which would have been good, as we had to send out for take away food and could not get hot drinks. I would have preferred a shower rather than a bath that I could not use. Car parking arrangements were a little limited as I was called to move my car so that another guest could leave at about 9.45pm. Fortunately I was not quite in bed at the time. Wifi for laptop and phone did not work in my room as promised.

This hotel is in an extremely shabby part of town, certainly not one where you would feel comfortable walking around at night.

We like the friendliness of the staff and the considering of their guests. The lodge is situated very central and very convenient to entertainment and the beach.
The area is not of the best.

Couples only!

The Location. Nice effort with the furnishing. Comfortable bed.
Does not accommodate the disabled. Booked for 2 adults and 2 kids (2 rooms) but was offered 2 units a distance from each other and although we opted for 1 room with a mattress for the kids the second was booked but we received no refund for that 2nd room we gave up.Parking not satisfactory. No hot water available when needed to bath at 7pm.

Zur Not kann man hier übernachten...

Zimmer war sauber und ok! Im Bad war ein Fenster zum Flur...????
Schlechteste Lage in krimmineller Lage im assiozialen Rotlicht Milieu Ich wurde nachts vom rezeptionisten geweckt, um mein Auto umzuparken... Es war zu laut im Flur, vom personal.
