Positive Reviews

A good base from which to find great value dining

This hotel is reported to offer a good, central location that is within easy reach of bus and train services. The worldwide philosophy of following the locals for the best restaurants in town worked like a dream. Many guests ignored the hotel restaurant and joined the crowds in the great value eateries around The Mall.

It fitted the bill for families

Guests acknowledged that families staying and using the bunk beds for their children would find the visit to be attractive from a financial standpoint.

Negative Reviews

Noisy and hilly surroundings

The meeting of the busy Victory Tunnel with the equally busy road outside the hotel defeated any hope of a good night’s sleep. The noise was unbearable. There were also problems in getting to The Mall. Yes, it was quite close by, but it was a really steep hill to climb, particularly for elderly guests.

The overall value was queried

Guests remarked upon the high cost and disappointing choices offered in the hotel’s restaurant. Food was disappointing and the restaurant missed a trick by closing quite early in the evening. Rooms also left much to be desired. They were basic with no TV or any similar luxury. A lack of hot water was also a frequently reported problem. That aside, the cleanliness and maintenance were not impressive, particularly in the bathroom areas.

Staff members need to up their game

Staff attitudes also came in for adverse criticism. Guests felt that, particularly with the day staff on the front desk, they tended to be very off-hand and quite offensive. There was a further suspicion that guests were routinely overcharged for taxis.
