Negative Reviews

Issues with lift.

The lift on the premises has been described as very small and dated with numerous guests reporting that they were stuck in the elevator and had to be rescued by the maintenance team. Many objected to the fact that the lift is very slow which caused delays when large groups of guests were checking in or out of the hotel.

Noise issues.

Some of the guests mentioned that the hotel's close proximity to the train tracks meant that they could hear the train horn late in the evenings as well as early in the morning which was loud enough to wake them up.

Rooms on the small side.

The rooms have been described as being quite compact with many guests stating that they had little room to move around and objected to the lack of storage space. .
