The standard of hygiene in the bathrooms was considered to be lacking with dirty tiles and floors. In some cases black mold has also been reported and toilets not thoroughly cleaned. .
Rooms in need of refurbishment
The bedrooms are in need of modernization and the decor is looking tired and dated. It is felt that standards have dropped in recent years and the hotel needs some work and investment to bring it back up to its former glory. .
Slow WI-Fi connection
The signal particularly in the guest rooms is very poor and occasionally drops out altogether. Some guests also reported being charged for Wi-Fi when they understood it to be included in the room rate so it is recommended you clarify this at the time of booking. .
