Negative Reviews

Some rooms not fully en-suite.

Some rooms at Dene House are not fully en-suite as they have to share toilet facilities. However, all rooms do have, at the very least, en-suite shower facilities.

Limited free car parking.

The car parking at Dene House is free, which is great, but space is at a premium so it is strictly offered on a first come-first served basis.

Wi-Fi can be hit and miss.

The free Wi-Fi does not reach all rooms, but in fairness this is pointed out to guests on arrival when they are recommended to connect to Wi-Fi in the dining room instead where it definitely does work.
