Negative Reviews


Some night time disturbance

Most of the rooms at Skeffington Arms are nice and quiet, however if you happen to get a room near to the bar you might have some trouble falling asleep. For that reason the intuitive staff have ear plugs ready at reception should anyone need them.


Rooms not too clean

There have been a number of complaints about dirty skirting boards in the rooms. While guests were not too happy with the floor in general, the bathrooms were reportedly a little messy too. Some guests took it upon themselves to sanitise the bathroom.


Smelly hallways

If you have a keen sense of smell you might have noticed the damp whiff in the elevators. Quite a few guests have complained about the smell lingering all the way along the hallways too. If there are some damp issues, and hopefully management can attend to these problems.
