Positive Reviews

Friendly staff

Staff deliver great customer service and guests are happy with the warm welcome that they receive at reception. The cheerful staff members are also helpful, and guests note that friendly hotel workers are one of the hotel's best features.

Great Wi-Fi

The complimentary Wi-Fi is fast and reliable. Guests like that they don't have to contend with a weak Wi-Fi signal and are able to use the internet without hassle.

Negative Reviews

Small bathrooms

Guests say that the bathroom facilities here are too compact. While functional, guests feel cramped in tiny bathrooms and wish that there was more space to shower and get ready in the morning.

Basic rooms and facilities

A number of guests feel that rooms are lacking in standard hotel amenities like an iron and ironing board or a small fridge. While it seems that tea and coffee-making facilities have recently been added, guests would like to see more toiletries in the bathroom. The no-frills rooms prompt many guests to recommend the hotel for an overnight visit, but not for an extended stay.

No elevator on the premises

Guests staying on the second floor can be inconvenienced when they discover that an elevator is nowhere in sight. Guests with a lot of luggage or with mobility issues are advised to ask for a ground-floor room.
