Negative Reviews

The breakfast isn't impressive

There are complaints that the breakfast spread has too many sweet pastries and not enough fruit or savoury items. Comments are also made indicating the coffee served during the morning meal tastes bad and the water used to make it is not hot enough.

A dated property

Guests are in agreement that this hotel is past its prime. They remark that it was obviously once a very beautiful place and still has some of that former appeal but is in desperate need of refurbishment.

The air conditioning doesn't work well

Guests say that the rooms get hot even with the air conditioner running. They say the air from the unit doesn't get cold enough to be refreshing, and to make matters worse, the air conditioner is loud.
