The Slipway review
Room was fine - to a good standard one might have expected from a 'western' hotel. The service could only be described as 'occasional' at the best with requests for selected room items not met promptly e.g kettle not working and replaced after multiple requests. Breakfasts were miniscule and poor quality with service by uninterested staff. Would not stay there again.
Slipway 'resort' itself rather tired with only saving grace the Waterfront restaurant with good service and food. Things at the hotel improved with the discovery of an Italian manageress who got things moving, Local staff basically need a well aimed rocket! Little of interest at Slipway other than a bed for the night!
A good location , but not ideal for a quick overnight stop at the airport, as it was right across town in the rush-hour. 1.5 hours in a non airconditioned minibus, and NOT in the private car as per the booking. Also it took about half an hour to locate the driver at the airport on arrival, as he was not in the obvious place, and was NOT carrying a name board..... the same bus in the morning, with the driver turning up late.... very poor transferRead more about the whole trip
