Noise can be irritating

Numerous visitors complain that the rooms are not appropriately soundproofed. Along with the sound of others staying at the property being bothersome, it is said that the rooms facing the road can be affected by external clamour.

Unreliable lifts

Guests point out that the maintenance of the hotel's two lifts could be better.It is claimed that at least one of the lifts is out of order uch of the time, and this can lead to serious delays with only a sole lift functioning for the entire building.

Rooms starting to show their age
