Negative Reviews

Maintenance could be improved

Although the rooms here are found to be clean and spacious, there are areas where improvements would benefit the overall comfort level. Guests have found the beds of a relatively poor standard, also noting various maintenance issues such as dated decor and broken locks and amenities.

Wi-Fi may disappoint

Feedback about the standard of the Wi-Fi at this hotel is a little mixed. Guests have either encountered no issue at all or have found the Wi-Fi signal virtually non-existent in their room.The signal appears to be stronger in public areas but this is not as convenient as having full access in the rooms.

Noisy air-conditioning

Guests have found the area in which this hotel is located is reasonably quiet but, unfortunately, the peace ends there. The in-room air-conditioning units are found to be very noisy. Guests who chose to turn their unit off to sleep could still hear the units in nearby rooms.
