Hotel needs updating
A significant number of guests have been critical of the general décor of the hotel. It seems that the hotel is in need of some refurbishment with the carpets, walls and lobby all being reported as looking old and tatty. There are also remarks about unpleasant odours in parts of the hotel. The hotel management points out that there is a programme of renovations being carried out, so hopefully these matters will be resolved soon.
Lifts not very reliable
The lifts in the hotel receive a few negative comments. Sometimes, they are out of service and when working can be noisy and unreliable.
Noisy air conditioning
A few guests have reported being disturbed by noisy air conditioning during the night in their rooms. This made sleeping somewhat difficult.
