Negative Reviews

Maintenance and cleanliness grumbles

Dated decor, aging fixtures and fittings, peeling paint and carpets that had seen better days were among the maintenance issues critics complained about. Occasional sub-standard cleanliness also attracted some criticism. There were claims of trash left behind from previous occupants, bathrooms that were unsatisfactorily cleaned, stained bedding and mold. Some critics felt housekeeping visits were sporadic and a few visitors claimed to have encountered cockroaches.

Musty smells

Damp or musty smells in certain areas of the building occasionally proved to be a nuisance for some reviewers.

No elevators

The lack of elevators at this property was a disappointment for some guests, especially those with mobility issues.
