Definitely not recommended

Turned up and they had lost our booking, but finally got that sorted. Restaurant was serving food when we were checking in, but was suddenly closed by the time we came back downstairs and they couldn't even manage to rustle up a piece of fruit. Room was atrciously decorated, outdated, and tired. Shower was moldy. Found out later that the locals know not to stay here. Will definitely avoid it in the future

Excellent location and fantastic restaurant.

Hotel itself is great as was the restaurant, but the bed was terribly uncomfortable so not much sleep was had.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to supply us with your feedback. As new owners, we recognize that changes and upgrades are necessary. We are currently in the process of replacing all the beds in the hotel and rear park complex. We are 45% of the way through putting brand new super kings in the rooms. It may be that the room you stayed in is yet to have a new bed installed. We apologize for your uncomfortable sleep! We certainly do not wish our guests to leave un-rested and tired. Kind regards, The White Swan Country Hotel Greytown.

I personally checked you in & explained that this was simply miscommunication from a staff member who thought you had booked a package - you shook my hand and told me with a big smile how well you thought that I had handled that. You paid $169 for a $225 room surely you did not expect a $140 dinner thrown in also? Regards Rob
