Negative Reviews

Furniture needs refurbishing

An update on room decor and furniture is something many visitors say they would like to see. Guests complain about the state of the chairs and furniture in their units. Certain spaces need uplifting, as they appear to be below guest expectations.

Rude reception

The reception does not seem to receive a lot of praise. On the contrary, guests complain of rude behaviour. The staff does not seem to be cordial or friendly, and guests also mention that checking in takes quite a while. The staff appears inefficient and speaks little English as well.

Poor Internet connection
