Horrible Stay!!!

Review of Palm Valley Inn
1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 07 Feb 2013
My husband booked a one night stay for us at palm valley in as we had a function near there, thinking that it was a good deal because of the nice photographs on the internet....BOY were we surprised!!!The pictures you see on the internet look nothing like the rooms (At least not the one we got!!!) The couches in the living room were covered with ugly cloths...when i lifted them they were stained all over and absolutely horrific!!! The decor (if you can call it that) was utterly tasteless and although the place was 'neat' it really didn't feel all that clean...:-(. the aircon was broken on a hot summers night, and needless to say we got absolutely NO sleep in that place!!The pillows were too puffy and very uncomfortable. They mention a 'private' garden...but the garden is not private at all...it's got a small little gate that anyone can come through and even watch you through. I really felt a bit unsafe there, and the security guards are not at all alert as they should be. This place charges alot of money for very little comfort and ease...so in my books, absolutely NO value for money...
Date of stay: January 2013
Room Tip: if you want to stay here, please make sure you know what room you are getting, and if you are...

This was not a good venue for a holiday. It is basically a cluster house complex with a few rooms for guests. Photos were extremely deceptive!!

The room was dirty, the couches were stained and filthy, when we went back to reception, the staff fully expected us and gave us the cleaner room without even waiting for us to show them. They said the started cleaning couches etc and didn't get to our room. why would they give it to us in the first place?? unknown....

Although there were small fan heaters in the guest house, it was freezing and there were no extra blankets provided (except the thin duvet) because it was 'self-catering'.... and no mention was made of this in the booking form.

Room tip: Ask which are clean!
