Negative Reviews

Slightly dodgy area

The immediate surrounds are slightly dodgy. The location tends to be a little intimidating, and many guests don't want to take the risk of walking at night.

Dinner a little sub-standard

Many are not happy with the dinners at this hotel. It is advised by previous guests that is a better option to eat out for dinner. The on-site restaurant are not the best at dinners, and the only meals available are light meals.
