Negative Reviews

The rooms are dated and in need of a cleaning

The guest rooms at this hotel are in need of upgrades as the decor and furnishings are dated. The standard of cleanliness is also lacking with guests reporting that the floors are dirty and that there is some mould in areas. Also reported was uncomfortable beds and missing amenities.

Staff is disorganised, unfriendly and unhelpful

Guests reported that the staff members at this hotel seem like they are lacking in basic training to deal properly with guests and to handle issues. They are unfriendly in their dealings with guests, they don't take responsibility for issues and instead pass the blame onto guests and they are unapologetic when things go wrong.

Poor-quality breakfast lacking in variety

Guests reported that the quality of the meals served at the hotel restaurant is poor. The food itself is of poor quality and the meals are poorly-prepared. There is also a lack of variety to choose from and items run out quickly.
