Negative Reviews


Limited privacy in bathrooms

A number of guests commented that, notwithstanding they recognized that the size of the pod would mean that they would be in close quarters with someone else, they felt that more could have been done to ensure that the bathroom section of the space maintained more privacy. For many the frosted glass shower screen did not pass the privacy test.

A number of guests still commented that more services could have been provided including a refrigerator, minibar and/or coffee/tea making facilities. Guests should be aware of this when booking this style of accommodation.


Tiny rooms

Notwithstanding that the rooms, do what they say on the tin! and reflect a pod style, many guests still provided comment that the rooms were much smaller than what they anticipated. Some guests have suggested more thought could be given to hanging space.
