Had all of my food stolen from the fridge. The staff didn't care and acted like it was a rare thing to happen. Then it happened to me again. Other guests I talked to reported similar experiences with their food. Anyone can walk in off the street and access the kitchen so I am not surprised this happens. A towel of mine was stolen too. Internet was slow even though you have to pay extra for it. Staff generally wasn't very friendly or helpful.

I'm sorry to hear that you have had an unpleasant experience while staying with us. It is very rare that we have issues with missing food but did have a few guests reporting this a while ago who, when they spoke to us, were given some basic essentials so that they were able to make something to eat. Things like towels can often be picked up by accident so always best to check with other guests as well as staff who would have been more than happy to help or provide a replacement for you.
