Disappointing beds

Most guests were happy with their stay at the hotel, but some guests said that the beds were disappointing for various reasons. Whilst a few guests complained the beds were small and old, others said that the mattresses were saggy or the beds too soft.

A little worn

Some guests felt that the hotel was suffering from a lack of refurbishment overall, and that the age of the hotel showed in the furnishings and bathrooms. That the hotel seems dated was the main complaint of any unhappy guests. Others felt that cleaning could be improved, and that this would help with the general appearance of the hotel.

Can be noisy

Some guests said that the hotel's thin walls meant they were disturbed by the noises of fellow guests in neighboring rooms and stairwells.
