Negative Reviews

Scarce availability of hot water

Limited hot water in the bathrooms proves to be an issue to guests. There have been several instances where the showers took too long to emit hot water. This can be quite frustrating, especially for those whose prefer hot showers.

Problems with the internet connection

Guests report encountering difficulties with the wireless internet connection at the accommodation. They note that the signal is weak and intermittent, particularly in the rooms. As such, guests who need to access the internet regularly feel inconvenienced as they have to seek more public places on the property to get a better connection.
