Poor kitchen facilities

Guests said that the kitchen facilities in the apartments were not very great. The crockery was broken or had stains, there was insufficient light in the kitchen for cooking etc. Guests said that it brought down the overall standard of the place.


Some guests said that there was a lot of noise coming from the neighbouring apartments. Even the music noise from the pub was a problem at times.

No elevator
