Positive Reviews

Room with a view

Those with lake-facing rooms tend to spend much of their time enjoying the magnificent views from the common balcony. Guests enjoy the relaxing environment, and are even able to make new friends while enjoying the sights.

Convenient pick-up service

The convenience of the pick-up service that the hotel offers is highly appreciated by all. It runs all day between Mall Road and the hotel, which helps to alleviate the overall transport costs in the long run.

Excellent budget hotel

Reasonable room rates, a relaxing environment, and a good vibe all contribute to the great value for money this budget-friendly hotel offers. Compared to other hotels in the same area, guests are satisfied with the rate they get here.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are small

Travellers report feeling a little claustrophobic in the rooms. They are quite stuffy due to the small amount of interior space, and those without a window don't get much ventilation either.

Room heater not included

During the cooler winter months, guests are disappointed that there's no heater included in the room rate. They feel it shouldn't be separately billed, but rather included in the price as a basic necessity.

Steep hill

Those who miss the last free pick-up service at night have to make the rather tiring climb up the hill back to the hotel. They complain that enjoying Mall Road at night is almost impossible without a car.
