Negative Reviews

Not as clean as expected

There have been quite a few complaints from visitors who said the rooms could do with more effective house-keeping. The bath tubs were grubby, and some curtains were off their rods. Regardless, the good price made up for these issues according to guests.

Needs a facelift

The hotel in general is in need of some TLC according to some travelers, where the paint is peeling off in areas, and the interior has become pretty dated. Guests said a modern update would be beneficial as the location is awesome.

Air-con is noisy

If you value your sleep, you should make sure the room is at the right temperature before you retire at night. Guests have said the air-con units are very noisy and will disturb your sleep.
