Negative Reviews

Minor Updates Required

Guests feel that the hotel needs a bit of revamping for elements like carpeting. The buildings appear to be slightly run down and can do with a fresh paint job both on the exteriors and interiors. The gardens could also do with better maintenance.

Car Parking

The hotel car parking can prove to be a bit confusing as per guest descriptions. Car parks for some units have also been mentioned as a bit too narrow.
