A notice on the door says: "Close for essential repairs.

"We will re-open soon.

"We apologise for any inconvenience."

The Mail was unable to contact the management when it called, with a landline ringing out with no answer, while a mobile number responded with a message stating the caller could not answer and would be sent a text message.
