Bad service”

Their premises are clean and tidy I agree but the service is not on point at all... I've booked for the accommodation with breakfast included but when I got there they told me there is no breakfast, and unfortunately I didn't screenshot anything. Secondly the receptionist told me that my room is not on the lodge according to my booking it's on the other new premises. I didn't have a problem but after 2 hrs they changed me to come back to the lodge they said I don't have a space is full. I had to rushly pick up all my things and get out because the receptionist wants to close...it was very unprofessional.

neat, spacious, fresh painted

It was alright. The staff told us we had to share the bathroom and kitchen with someone else. Through Agoda booking, I only expect to share the kitchen but not the bathroom. Eventually, no one else use the bathroom except us. The place has been renovated. I can smell the new paint. The key for the door is a problem. We cannot lock the room door from inside. The dog from neighbor baking through the night. Very noisy. Other than that, everything is fine. Staff is helpful. We just stay for a night. Value for money though.
