"Nosiest hotel I’ve stopped"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed April 21, 2019 NEW
We stopped at the hotel for three nights and I can honestly say I would never return. Our first night we got into bed to hear a horrible rattling noise, after 20 minutes of it not stopping we contacted reception who told us it was building noise and they could move us to a different floor. The noise was completely unbearable to sleep but it seemed as though it was something they were used to. We then moved to another room on the second floor and continuously had the worst nights sleep we’ve had in a hotel. Other guests would come and go at unsociable hours and you could hear every conversation, argument, Skype call etc as if they were in the room. On the surface it appears a nice hotel but most of the people are stopping are here to party because people were regularly coming in at 2am/3am and had no cares about keeping their noise down. This happened all three nights to the point I couldn’t wait to check out and dreaded going back on the last night. It wasn’t the same room each time as well so it generally had noisy guests and ridiculously thin walls. The street noise was a problem too. The rooms are tiny and cramped too and it’s really tired. The bathroom is tiny and the shower floods all over the floor. The only benefit this hotel has is it’s location but it wouldn’t be enough to ever make me stay again.

Even though we have just returned to Canada, we look forward to seeing you again next year. The staff are all so welcoming and approachable which is important to make our Holiday so pleasant. The location is so close to transit that makes it easier to not rent a car.
