Missing Amenities

Although guests loved their rooms overall, they thought that some items could be added to improve the overall comfort. Coffee and tea making facilities in the rooms are highly preferred and some rooms are in need of a dressing table or chair, and a mirror.


Some are Smaller

The rooms differ in size and most guests had no complains. However, some guests found their rooms to be a bit too small for their preference, but they found the layout to be functional and comfortable regardless.
