The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were a couple of complaints among them about the hotel's dated decor and lack of elevator.

While most reviewers were pleased with their rooms, a few guests felt the hotel's decor needed an upgrade. These guests reported dated furniture, and also suggested the carpets and drapes were in need of a good cleaning.

A couple of lodgers were disappointed the hotel didn't provide an elevator. These guests described carrying luggage to their second floor rooms, which they found to be an inconvenience. It would be recommended that those with mobility issues book rooms on the first floor.
