Negative Reviews


No controllable air conditioning in rooms

A source or annoyance for some guests was the fact that room temperatures are controlled centrally and can't be individually tailored to meet guest requirements. This resulted in some guests being too hot in their rooms.


Some rooms and beds on the small side

Based on feedback from a few guests, it seems that some of the rooms are a little small compared to others in the hotel. Also, the beds were too small for a few guests.


Lift not particularly convenient

The hotel does provide a lift but it seems it doesn't serve all the rooms very well, particularly on the second floor where after having used the lift it is still necessary to walk down some stairs to reach the rooms.
