Negative Reviews


Rooms may disappoint

The rooms here are an almost constant source of disappointment. Guests have found the accommodation very tired look and in a poor state of cleanliness and maintenance. Guests also report various sources of unwanted noise.


Housekeeping could be improved

Feedback about the standard of the housekeeping here is a little mixed. While some guests encountered no real issues, others found the service a little slack. Poorly cleaned rooms and banging about in the hallways are among the reported issues.


Poor Wi-Fi service

Guests have been disappointed by the small amount of Wi-Fi that is offered free each day. Also, guests have found the Wi-Fi is regularly unavailable and offers a slow connection.
