Negative Reviews

Getting to the hotel can be quite a challenge

The signage to the hotel is not very visible and the hotel is located behind a petrol station A number of guests have missed the turn off the A2 and had to go past and double back in order to get to the hotel.

Noise still getting in despite double glazed windows

A few guests have complained that the traffic was noisy, especially in rooms close to the road, even thought the rooms were apparently soundproofed A few windows could not shut completely and this let more noise in Noise coming in from the corridors and other rooms was also an issue.

The breakfast selection has a very limited choice

A few guests have raised issue with the lack of variety in the breakfast menu The hot menu was thought to be especially limited.
