Negative Reviews

Dated property in need of renovation

Guests comment that, taken as a whole, this property is somewhat dated and in need of renovation to bring it up to a more modern appearance. Most noted seem to be the TVs and furniture within the guest accommodations.

Small guest units and bathrooms

Certain units here appear to be on the smaller side. Travellers staying in these rooms say that space is tight within these configurations. This holds true not only for the sleeping areas but also for their en-suite bathrooms.
