Some rooms noisier than others.

Overcrowded pool.

The pool is open to members of the public as well as hotel guests which means that the area is often very busy. Those staying at the hotel objected to the large numbers of people at the pool and were therefore often inclined not to use it. .

Slow service.

Some of the guests said that the service at the restaurant was rather slow as they had to wait longer than expected to receive their orders. The poolside bar was said to be understaffed with guests having to wait a long time to get served. .
