Negative Reviews


Loud housekeeping staff

Guests say that the housekeeping staff of the hotel is rather heavy handed. The beds shook every time the members handled the linen cupboard doors as they slammed them shut loudly. Guests say they also talked too loudly and their chatter is disturbing. Though check-out is at 11 in the mornings, guests are miffed that the staff appears to clear the rooms at nine.


Odd smell in the hotel

Some guests did not like the odd smell present in the corridors and stairwell. They also say that the hotel appears dated.


Slow food service; unorganized young staff

Several guests say that the service in the restaurant is slow. They say some of the younger members of the staff are not very organized or friendly.
