Negative Reviews

There is a lack of Accessibility in some Areas of the Building

Some guests have reported having to climb a flight of stairs with all their luggage to get to the reception area and this proves to be difficult especially for older people or anyone with accessibility issues.

This Hotel is Noisy and seems to be on the Decline

The area around the hotel and within the hotel itself is noisy. The rooms are small and it is hard to get a comfortable temperature Some guests have reported disrepair in some areas of the building with things broken or untended to and some staff members are unhelpful and unfriendly.

The Wi-Fi service is not Free

Despite the size and calibre of this hotel, the Wi-Fi service is not complimentary and you need to pay to use it.
