Negative Reviews

Mixed feelings about service

Past guests have been left with different impressions of the service here. While the majority have found the staff to be friendly, the standard of actual service could be better. Guests have felt that the reception and housekeeping services could be improved.

Lacks thorough cleanliness

Guests have been quite disappointed by the level of cleanliness in the rooms. While it is unlikely that you will find your room filthy, it does seem that the staff cut corners when refreshing the accommodation.

Surroundings can be noisy

Rooms that are located near the hotel’s nightclub are found to be excessively noisy and certainly unsuitable for those guests who are travelling with children. Guests have had to be moved to higher floors to escape the noise.
