Positive Reviews

Lovely rooms

All the guests loved rooms. They were cosy and very well maintained. Bathrooms were big with an enormous bath tub supplied with good quality toiletries. The furnishings and amenities were great ensuring a comfortable stay. Beds were very comfortable with a nice duvet. As per some guests, the rooms had a very homely feel to it, and it was like a home away from home for them.

Helpful staff

Most of the guests were highly appreciative of the service rendered to them by the hotel staff. Each one of them was very attentive to all the needs of the guests and made them feel at ease and looked after. They even helped the guests in planning the itinerary for their trip.

Palatable meals

Breakfast and the other meals in the hotel/pub were prepared well.  The best part was that the ingredients used to make the meals were all locally produced. The breakfast spread included egg, tomatoes, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, beans, toast, jam, tea and fresh fruit juice.

Negative Reviews

No hot water

Few guests could not take a bath in the morning as there was no supply of hot water. Moreover, the flow of water in the taps was very slow and it took a long time to fill the bucket.

Slow service

Even though the food was very delicious, some of the guests felt that the waiting time was way too long. They had to wait for almost an hour for the food to arrive.

No Wi-Fi

Many guests were disappointed on finding out that there was no Wi-Fi connection at all. It was very difficult for them to stay connected without a Wi-Fi connection.
