Negative Reviews

Update required

The rooms and hallways could do with updating as they appear worn out. Carpets are stained and old and bear a musty smell. Windows look dingy. No elevators are present.

Room issues

The beds in the rooms are terribly hard and high. The rooms are extremely humid and sticky on cloudy days. The curtains of the windows do not fit and no blinds or shades are present allowing no privacy. The hair dryer is sketchy and tends to spark and go out within seconds of being switched on.

Parking area crowded

When events like weddings take place the parking lot is full to overflowing making it difficult for staying-in guests to get a space.
