Hi There, Thanks so much for your lovely review! It's so nice to hear you had such a great stay and you managed to take advantage of the entertainment on offer! Can't wait to have you again. Wake Up! management


The staff seem to be more concerned about whatever is going on in facebook rather than someone who has been traveling for the past day and just wants to check in. I found every staff member to be rude, not willing to help and not willing to do their job properly. My room was a mess, couldn't see the floor. I wasn't told where anything was. I had to find out for myself. Not worth the money at all! Never staying here again.

Hi there, Thanks for leaving us a review! It's very disappointing to hear your experience at reception. We have a lovely crew on the desk, so I'm very sorry you got that impression. I would like to follow up on your review, if you could email me that would be greatly appreciated. Wake Up! Management


My bed-sheets hadn't been changed. The room was a tip. The bathroom didn't have properly working taps and no soap dispenser. I don't know whether it's because the night I came, or not but forget trying to sleep. People constantly in and out of the room, turning lights on and off, spraying deodorants, urinating in the room. I did explain the situation to the front desk staff and they were helpful and did give me a refund. Only positives are the staff and the location.

Hi There, Thanks for letting us know of your experience here at Wake up! It's always appreciated. We allow our guest's to check in before the room has been cleaned, this may be why your bed hadn't been changed. My apologies if this explained for you. Hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Wake Up! Management
