Positive Reviews

Great location

The hotel is centrally located in Georgetown and close to many of the area's attractions, so guests love the position of the property. Being able to explore the city without a car makes the location convenient for visitors.

Clean rooms

Guests say that the rooms at the hotel are very clean. They believe that the housekeeping staff does an efficient job of ensuring that the rooms are in good shape upon arrival.

Free bicycles

Visitors enjoy using the free bicycles on offer at the hotel, as this makes it easy to explore the area without having to walk or find transportation.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathrooms

Some of the rooms at the hotel have shared bathrooms. Guests do not like the way these rooms are set up, as there isn't much space. In addition, guests not expecting to share a bathroom did not enjoy having to walk down the hall to use the facilities.

Small rooms

Many of the rooms at the hotel are extremely small and visitors report that there isn't much space when travelling as a couple. Guests believe that the rooms are far too small to be call comfortable.

Poor soundproofing

The hotel isn't very soundproof, according to guests, as the walls are thin and the floorboard creak whenever someone walks on them. The lack of soundproofing causes difficulties for guests when trying to sleep at night.
