Negative Reviews

Noisy and outdated rooms

Guests said that the rooms in the inn were tired and in need of refurbishment. Plus, due to lack of air-conditioning the rooms get too hot at night during summer. Walls of the rooms are paper thin and conversations in the room next door are easily audible.

Rude, ignorant staff

Many guests said that the staff at the inn was rude and impolite on many occasions. Even the staff at the reception was absconding from there, totally ignorant about what the guests need. Some guests said that the staff replied bluntly to their queries.

Uncomfortable beds

Beds were old and stained. Guests said that the springs in the beds could be felt distinctly. Moreover, the pillows were very flat and guests were deprived of a good night's sleep.
