Negative Reviews

Bathroom drainage not on par.

Guests were unimpressed with faulty drainage within the bathrooms. Some reported finding hair in the bathtub on arrival and others mentioned this issue resulted in unpleasant odors filling up the bathroom.

Irregular maintenance takes away from stay.

Many guests were horrified by the state of the facility in some areas. Mouldy ceilings, leaking aircon and ripped wallpaper are a few of the complaints heard from guests . The old carpets were stained, faded and suffered neglect due to irregular maintenance and vacuuming. However, regular maintenance will solve this.

No fresh linen a let down.

Guests expected frequent, clean linen changes each morning. However, the Inn lacked a fresh environment. Some complained about beds being a little too hard, while some said the pillows are too big.
