Cleanliness and maintenance issues

According to reviewers, cleanliness can be poor at this property. Many are unhappy about dusty patches in the rooms and bathrooms which could do with a deeper clean. On the maintenance front, travellers claim that they have to contend with interruptions to the hot water supply. Moreover, it is claimed that parts of the hotel would benefit from a fresh lick of paint.

Shared bathroom grumbles

The lack of full en-suite bathroom facilities often proves to be a setback for guests. While the bedrooms do contain shower cubicles, guests have to leave their quarters in order to use all other bathroom facilities, which can become annoying.
