The Bad
Negative comments were in the minority and focused on noise disturbances and the extra charge for parking fees.

Some guests were not aware of the extra charge for parking and although it was only $13 per night, they were disappointed.

A few guests complained of hearing the neighbours through the walls or connecting doors and being disturbed by the sound of trains on the nearby train track, their horns, and music from a nearby pub.

Occasionally guests felt the rooms were a little dated and a few guests complained of AC units or heaters that did not work properly.
