The Bad
While most of the reviews used for this analysis were favourable there were a few common guest complaints, most notably about aging decor and about the absence of an elevator.

Some guests said that the hotel was starting to show its age and that updates were in order. Bathrooms and furniture in the rooms were mentioned as needing particular attention. 

A number of guests found the lack of an elevator at this two-storey hotel to be inconvenient. Guests with mobility issues and guests with lots of luggage said that stair climbing was difficult.

A few guests complained of lingering odours of cigarette smoke in the rooms, while others said that the breakfast room was small and that there were not enough chairs or tables to accommodate all guests.

"value for money."

"Honestly, it needs an elevator for second floor guests. It was very difficult for me with cases and bags and laptop etc. The room was fine. I like the convenience of the fridge and microwave. The front desk staff were helpful and with the breakfast the stay had value for money."
