They include one from a woman who described it as a great place for a divorce!

However be warned - if you try to write a new one right now, this is the message you will be met with:

"Due to a recent event that has attracted media attention and has caused an influx of review submissions that do not describe a first-hand experience, we have temporarily suspended publishing new reviews for this listing.

"If you’ve had a firsthand experience at this property, please check back soon - we’re looking forward to receiving your review!"
