Negative Reviews

Rooms need a serious overhaul

According to most guests, rooms in this property need some serious refurbishments. Bathrooms had moulds and insects were all over the room. The place smelled musty, hot water was good for one or two persons only and pull out couches were filthy. Overall, a major repair is needed for improved guests' experience.

Poor quality beds and pillows

Guests were dismayed when they saw how terrible the condition of the beds. The sheets were noticeably stained with burn holes from cigarettes. Moreover, the pillows were thin while the mattresses were as hard as box spring.

Substandard swimming pool facility

Most guests were disappointed with how old and dirty the pool provided was! They did not want to use it because it was obviously not cleaned and had rubbish in it. Furthermore, it had green scum on its side walls. Hence, guests felt it was dangerous to use.
