Positive Reviews

Negative Reviews

Hallways dark and rooms left unlocked

Guests who arise early in the mornings to go out say that the hallways are pitch dark with no lights provided. So it is a juggle for them to lock their doors using a torch light on their phones. Many guests say that the housekeeping leave their rooms unlocked after cleaning.

Dated decor

Many guests say that the decor of the hotel appears dated and feel that the place can do with a revamp. The plants in the garden and in the pots need more care and watering.

Some rooms are small with smoke smells

Some guests say the rooms allocated to them were small. The windows backed onto the rear patio which is a designated smoking area and so they were exposed to smoke smells as well. They felt they did not get value for the rates charged.
