Positive Reviews

Negative Reviews

Noise from the pub may enter the rooms

The pub is separate to the building where the rooms are located. Still, guests complained that they were able to hear people laughing and loud music from the pub. Upon booking, make sure to request for a room that is the farthest from the pub.

Lapses with the housekeeping services

Some guests were able to see signs of previous occupants of the room, such as garbage in the trash can, hair on the bed sheet and pillowcases, and even food under the bed! If you encounter this issue, you can always call for a housekeeper to have them clean your room in no time.

Unsatisfactory foods during breakfast

Some of the guests commented that the breakfast served was a little below the average; old fruits, pre-cooked eggs, burnt breads, tasteless coffee and others. This is not always the case though. However, if you find the foods at the breakfast unsatisfactory, there are other dining options nearby that you can visit.
