Home away from home”

It was my second stay and I can safely say that I absolutely love this hotel. Unfortunately, the conference guests in the room next to mine were rowdy and inconsiderate which made it hard to sleep but as soon as I requested to be moved, the staff was extremely helpful and made it a point to move me to another room immediately so I can get some rest. I appreciate the effort made. The hotel is always extremely clean and well kept. The staff is friendly and always there to assist at any time of the day.

The receptionist Rebecca was so friendly and welcoming. She gave me and my friend the best warm welcome and already we felt at home even before we reached the room. They are quick to respond to the calls for example when I called requesting for the iron and when I called requesting for the towels to be changed. They cleaned the room and made the beds nicely every morning. Really it was a very good experience being at Apollo, a home away from home.

If you have ever been to Greece before the theme in this hotel will remind you of it. I found the place as well as the staff very welcoming. Even though I had messed up my booking Elna who works in reservations graciously assisted me in restoring my original booking with all my requests. Although it's not mentioned on Agoda, the wifi is free and the connection is great, plus the data is unlimited and you can connect as many devices as you like,

Our stay at the Agoda for the Herbals Conference”

Cleanliness, room comfort, decor

We enjoyed our stay at the Agoda. However, the hotel has a staffing problem: there was no barman in attendance-the manager had to be called our to serve us drinks- no beer on tap. At night there was no staff in evidence other than 1 person at the front desk. No catering for us vegeterians ( there were several of us at the Conference).Waiters in and around the dining room should be in uniform and not in a pair of old jeans and a tea shirt!( this is supposed to be a 4 star hotel!!!). The "garden" leaves much to be desired- how about some trees and plants? The swimming pool was filthy- the garden should NOT have to be shared with a second- hand car sales lot!!
