Negative Reviews

Noisy rooms

The hotel is positioned on a main road. The flow of traffic across six lanes is constant and guests complained that traffic noise can be heard even with the windows closed. Guests also reported being disturbed by the old air conditioning system which is noisy and in need of replacement. Rooms facing away from Bell Street are recommended as they are quieter.

Dated with 60s and 70s style decor

Guests commented that the hotel is set in an old building and the furnishings appear to be out of the 60s and 70s era. It's time to refurbish with new carpets, a coat of paint and to replace the dated wooden furnishings.

Unnecessary advertising of rules

The hotel has a number of notices around the property advising guests of things to ‘not' to and the extra charges which may be incurred. Guests reported that these notices created an unpleasant atmosphere.
