Several guests described the in-room decor, furnishings and fixtures as dated. One reviewer said that the fixtures and appliances were "a bit dated but functional and in good shape". While many reviewers described their rooms as clean, as mentioned above, a couple of guests expressed concerns about cleanliness. One reviewer said that "the bathroom was not as clean as I would have expected it to be".

Isolated complaints included: uncomfortable sofabed, breakfast items were mostly bread items, and a guest did not have a pleasant view of the harbour from his room.
