Negative Reviews

Poor Wi-Fi signal in the rooms

The guesthouse’s rooms do not have a very strong Wi-Fi signal You might have to go to the public areas of the guesthouse if you need to access the internet at a moderately better speed and stronger signal.

Poor circulation of air in the rooms

The windows only open a small distance and this does not sufficiently allow the air to circulate into and out of the room The rooms can get hot and stuffy.

Lack of an onsite restaurant is an inconvenience

Quite a number of guests have complained about the fact that there is no onsite restaurant and they weren’t aware of this fact beforehand.

Hard mattress which is not long enough

The mattresses are unsuitable for tall people according to some guests as they are of an inadequate length There are also complaints of the mattresses being hard and the pillows being flat.
