Golden Thistle Hotel - Reader Reports & Opinion

Guest Report   

R. Bacchus from U.S.A. visited in August 2006 and awarded  One out of Five

The night before arriving in Tobago, I called the hotel to ask a couple of questions. I thought that was the time to tell me that there was a power outage scheduled for the following day. When we got there, out rooms were not ready and we couldn't even use the toilet because there was not power to operate the water pumps. The manager was unconcerned and unwilling to give us any type of compensation. For a business based on 'your customer' we were greated as if we were an inconvenience to them at the time. They had a schedule and information on thier cleaning posted in the room. Well, the beds did get made, but for the 4 days we were there, they never changed the sheets. Their "fully equipped kitchenette" was only half equipped to say the least. Tobago was wonderful, but maybe find somewhere else to stay.

My family & I stayed at the golden thislte in May of this year(06) and I'm afraid I was totally disappointed with the state of the place the room,bed & bed linen was very shabby, the fridge did not work and hot water and proper shower was not evident,

I'm afraid this is one hotel that I will not recommend for myself let alone any one else.

What was so intricately described is not what was received upon check in...The room was shabby, the bed completely run down, could not even sleep because the beds were worn out at one point it was too unbearable having the springs from the mattress sticking me in the back. There was NO hot water as advertised, please change the hangers in your closet as they were rusted, also please actually ensure that things such as the a/c and mini fridge are actually switched on before guest check in as i had to switch these said items on and the scents produced were not appealing. Back to the shower though small and quaint as it was was in dire need of cleaning and not to mention the shower head and was just twirling about because it was in need of fixing. And please note that the water flow from the shower was a mere trickle so taking a shower was beyond a tedious event. It was sad that i paid so much more and stayed in shambles when i could have paid so much less and stayed at the Vip guest house just a few miles downt the road and received a bigger room, Hot and cold water and peace of mind. I will NEVER recommend the golden thistle hotel to anyone trying to enjoy a vacation on a budget! Please note i would rather rate this establishment as a 0 star establishment!

I cant exactly remember how the hospitality at this establishment was since I am normally too drowsy when I arrive at the hotel due to medication which I have to take when travelling..... But the night after my arrival, I went to the pool and had a great time.

They also woke us up the next morning to get to the Ferry on time and I would go back there.
