Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi issues.

Guests who wanted to connect to the Internet from their rooms were disappointed to find that the Wi-Fi signal was quite weak and intermittent which inconvenienced those who wanted to catch up on their work or correspondence.

Unlit path leading to the guest house.

Walking back at night time was a bit difficult for some guests as the path leading to the house is unlit which meant that many had to carry torches with them in order to see the way.

Too many rules.

Guests found the list of rules left in their rooms slightly restrictive and overbearing and added that they felt inconvenienced nit being able to bring back food and drink back to their rooms which were purchased elsewhere.
