Negative Reviews

Smoky odours

Smoking is allowed in the on-site casino and consequently reviewers are often disappointed that they can smell lingering smoke in other parts of the hotel like the lobby.

Breakfast lacks variety

It is claimed by reviewers that although the food at breakfast is quite tasty, the buffet could do with a few extra options so that it better caters for international guests.

Mixed feelings about service

Guests are divided about the quality of the customer service here. Although there are individual reports of pleasant encounters with helpful and efficient personnel, there are just as many which take issue with the customer care. This is due to reports of disputes over bills and extra penalty charges at check out. Moreover, there are claims that some guests that booking details go missing when checking in, which can cause lots of unnecessary commotion.
