Negative Reviews

Property has a worn, dated ambience

While some guests appreciate this hotel's faded glory-type charm, many reviewers remain distinctly unimpressed. In fact, some visitors say the property as a whole has a rather dingy and shoddy vibe. Dimly lit interiors and poorly presented accommodations are the most commonly complained about issues.

Some unpleasant aromas

It has been noted that there are some unwelcome smells have a habit of lingering within the accommodation areas. The bathrooms are, visitors note, the main culprits, with the toilets and tubs proffering rather pungent odours.
