Negative Reviews

Poor customer service

Guests complained that the front desk staff was not cooperative or courteous. They noted that the staff did not bother to take note of any requests from guests. They were also not found to be prompt in their duties. Guests had to wait for a long time before they were checked in, as it was done manually. Guests felt that they needed to take training in hospitality/customer service. Guests complained that the hospitality staff did not do their work with dedication. The washcloths, towels and bed sheets were not changed every day. The trash-bin was also not cleared daily. Most of the time they had to do the housekeeping work themselves. They always got a strong smell of cleaning product when they entered the hotel.

No elevator

There is no elevator in the hotel and the senior guests found it difficult to climb the flights of stairs.

Other issues

Guests saw some undesirable people hanging around in the property. They were also apprehensive because of the crime reports in the area. Guests complained that the breakfast was loaded with carbohydrates. Eggs, sausages or bacon was missing.
