I stayed here for two nights only and it was ok..room was nice and i got the price for only 35pounds per night..they have given me this rate since i stayed in their sister company at alex lodge(which i will tell more about it later)..but first i will tell you about globetrotters first..this is a bed and breakfast accomodation they have given me a double room which by luck since at first they're planning to give me a single room(ensuite)just above the bar,thats why the rate is lower than usual,,,their normal rate is 53 pounds including breakfast and without breakfast 47 pounds..so originally my room was just above the bar which they also owned..so the room will be noisy..i told the reservation its ok im used to it(since i stayed in alex lodge,,i guess i have to tell you about alex lodge first for you to understand)but the room im supposed to stay in was occupied,,good thing so they have given me this double room for the price of 35..which is good.
over all i like this lodge better than alex..though the same owner but the staff is nicer here than alex.
this is just a simple bed and breakfast hotel for that price well i guess its ok..since its clean though nots so clean as you checked the cups and saucer inside your room for your coffee and the water heater for your coffee...wow!they didnt clean it from the last time it has been used..since the water is still there..anyway over all my stay was good for that price.
this bed and breakfast i booked online coz they have this promo "weekend 3-2-1"which means if you want to stay for the weekend starting friday..you stay three nights for the price of two which is good..coz it says in their website the price each night inclduing breakfast is 47 pounds..so i think this is a good offer thats why i booked here..and when i get there they said its not true coz if that will be the case the room rate will cost only 25pounds,,well..i guess that is not my fault..so what the reception did was she offered me 35 pounds per night instead of one free night..so i said ok coz i stayed extra night on a weekday which their rate is different on a weekday..they said its 53 so i agree.See if they will give me the promo package which according to them is not correct..here will be the cost..starting friday till monday since i stayed their for 4 nights..47x2=94(that is considered 3nights)plus 53 for monday night the total will be 147 but since the reception said the promo is not correct they will just give me 35 pounds per night for 4 so the total i paid was140..hmm that save me more..thats why i agreed :-)
anyway,whats my point?if you will reserve on this hotel online..and get the weekend promo..please do so then when you get there complain about it so they will give you a better price..got it?
Unique qualities?well when they have given me my room i wasnt informed that its just beside the bar and mind you i stayed their on weekends so it was so noisy as expected and what more you can hear the footsteps of people walking around and above the hotel since its an old building maybe thats the reason why you can hear it but even the staff do not care if they walked so noisy..i guess they just used to it..thats why i changed hotel at globetrotters..in fairness my room at globetrotters was quiet.
another unique quality is they make up the room even though you didnt display it outside(you know those make up this room card that you hang oustide the door)but they do come in the afternoon..late afternoon so you wont be expecting that..and the bad thing is they will knock once and when you asked "who is it?"they will just continue opening the door themselves while telling you its housekeeping..so if you are undressed at the moment better be fast to get to the door to hold it..so you wont get caught up naked by some housekeeper.
