Negative Reviews

Shared bathroom a negative

Guests are bummed by the lack of private bathrooms. They say that the shared bathroom situation lowers the value of the stay in their eyes. Particularly, guests are also disheartened that there is only one toilet within the shared bathroom, and that the shower temperature goes from hot to cold and back far too easily.

Sound proofing an issue

Guests complain that noise carries easily from the pub to the rooms. They note that it seems sound proofing in this building is an issue, and could stand to be improved. As it is, guests are sometimes disturbed in the evenings.
